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?

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