Hey Guys, this year was kinda successful for me, i had the chance to keep 5 praying mantids, that were wild caught and not bought or home-rasied (2 males caught at L5 Stage, still alive, 2 Females caught on L4 stage, both dead, 1 Adult female still alive). usually the first i catch is kinda special to me, But i just woke up today to find out she hadnt moulded correctly, exactly like the other female, so i was pretty sad. I Want to make some things clear for praying mantis keepers so this doesnt happen to them. DONT KEEP YOUR PRAYING MANTIS IS A COFFE CUP AFTER L6, females seem to have a harder time shedding since they're bigger. I Sadly made that mistake, so now im left with 2 males (1 L8 Adult, 1 Sub Adult. And an adult female). Hopefully I Can start breeding at the 14th of Aug. My question is now though : what should i do with the half-dead female that failed to molt, she is still alive but disabled. Should i feed her to my adult female hoping that will help her produce more offspring, or free her from her suffering, by freezing her.
