Found a couple of these guys basking in the sun on my tomato stake. Good, bad?

Thanks

Challenging to say what it is because the focus is on the leaf behind the stake.

Are these better Jean? They're baby mantids, huh?


Thanks.

Pretty sure that it's a mantis nymph.

Awesome! That's now ladybugs and mantids in my arsenal. Either I'm creating an environment to attract beneficials or somebody up the street is releasing them(although I don't think there's anybody relatively near me growing veggies) and they're coming to MY garden -- much like MY releases of past.

Thanks
