The praying mantis babies were born!
They look like little mosquito's !
We set them free, because apparently you have to or they are so hungry they start killing each other! That I didn't know. We are ordering 1,500 ladybugs and building some ladybug homes ! Also on the list are more praying mantis eggs. I am all about natural solutions, rather than chemicals being sprayed in my yard .
When you make butterfly and ladybug houses, you put a beneficial lure in the boxes that make them set up shop and stay in your yard! I think that is really interesting.
The cocoons are formed for the butterflies!
A nook I am wanting to put in my yard under my trellis. Climbing roses...one of my favorites!

We are leaving to go pet some baby animals! Lions, panthers, monkeys! I will take pics! So excited.
Have a wonderful Weekend!
