I am not going to go into any great detail because it is sort of, as they say, “a long story”. Basically:
- If you are going to rear insects in your dorm room, don’t put one egg case in a jar and leave the other one lying out on your desk. Probability says there’s a 50/50 chance as to which one will hatch first; Murphy’s law says the one on your desk absolutely, positively will hatch first.
- Baby praying mantids look like spiders and jump like grasshoppers.
- Each mantis egg case results in 50-200 mantids. All of which are now loose in the basement of Psi U.
In other news, if anyone has a fruit fly problem, let me know. I am dead serious.
