So I recently got a Ghost Mantis at the Reptile Super Show in Pomona (not sure what instar, maybe L4?) and she's been refusing food. I'm offering Dubia nymphs but she doesn't seem too interested. Could she be approaching a molt or is the prey too big for her?

How big are the dubia nymphs you're offering her, relative to her body size? When I've raised ghost mantises, I usually fed them fruit flies and (as they got larger) cricket nymphs. I've never tried dubias with them.
