Storing Praying Mantis Egg Caes

jimla(Z6 PA)April 6, 2013

I've collected about 20 so far. How can I keep them so they will hatch when the veggie garden is in full swing? If I refridgerate them how long will they stay dormant? Any special tips for storage?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

As long as those egg cases are kept at less than about 40 degrees F they will stay dormant.
