I noticed after a moult my Hierodula Majuscula had red patches over the front of her compound eyes. She molted last night/this morning and revealed black pitted sections on the front of her compound eyes. We think it's an infection but as she's my first mantis and I can't find much info on eye damage online I'm not 100% certain so would appreciate any advice or comments people have. I've attached a picture of her eyes. We think she's blind or partially sighted as she can only strike prey when we hold oit in front of her antennae and gently touch it to them, however she can still climb and attempt to strike at prey.
