        Nice. I've never seen that before. Did you know what they were before they hatched?

          Yes I knew it was a Praying Mantis egg case. I always try to preserve them when pruning. I have several around, but think this is the 1st time I have witnessed a hatch.

          Mike maybe a couple will hitch a ride on a plant.

            You can buy them online. They keep the egg cases refrigerated until someone orders them. About two weeks after warming up, they hatch out.

                Sweet. There are a couple fields where I walk my dogs and I'm always on the lookout as summer ends/fall for new egg cases to bring home. Even though I've hatched a bunch in my yard, very few stick around - or they're preyed upon themselves. Really cool, though.
