Why is it OK to feed an ugly brown hoppy insect to your mantis but not a beautiful orange butterfly? I think we will have to release Trevorina soon, and keep pet crickets instead. Having said that, James' herb garden is much healthier since all the grasshoppers got eaten by our fully organic pest control system. Trevorina has been an adult for a while and must be nearly ready to start making next year's mantises. Where to release her? While finding grassland at edge of the forest is easy, finding grassland that wont be cut before the eggs hatch next year is more difficult.
