Rated 1 out of 5 by from These should not be released into gardens A note should be appended to the product description to emphasize that these mantis eggs are only for laboratory or clasroom study, and they should NOT be released into a garden. I had to cancel my order after finding out that these Chinese mantids are an exotic species and potentially invasive in terms of displacing native ones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute mantises! I always love being able to witness the emergence of these adorable creatures. The only negative thing, not being much in itself, is that the branches are always broken off. This causes me to end up having to use Q-tips and floss or devise other contraptions to hang up the egg cases so they may emerge properly. That's the only reason I gave it 3 on "ease of use"...no branch makes it a bit more difficult. Anyways, they are still neat!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's too soon, they haven't hatched... I'll know better when and if they hatch in 6 week if I'm happy with them.. I have high hopes but really can't give an opinion because it is too soon to see if the eggs are alive yet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failure to Launch I purchased the "Living Pack of Three Praying Mantis Egg Cases" in February, 2015. They were stored for a week in the refrigerator, but then did not hatch at room temperature.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product is AMAZING for kids to study Our Kindergarten students work on an insect expedition each Spring. We chose the preying mantis this year so the children could experience a insect that they don't normally see. Each day they checked the egg cases to see if anything was happening ... about 6 weeks into having the egg case I hear SHRIEKS coming from the Science observation table! The children found it incredible to watch the small insects emerge from the case. The hard part of the insects hatching is separating them quickly and efficiently and exactly what to feed the new babies. But we were able to let a few go into the field behind our school and hope that some survived!!!!!
