    Got married and the wife really hates them so I guess this year I won't have any. When we decide to buy a house I will release some and maybe keep some in captivity if I have garage to put a terrarium in.
    I consider every plant hardy until I kill it

    Actually, they're hyper territorial, so if you put them on your yew, that's exactly where they'll stay for the rest of their lives. So it was told to me.

    Ive never seen one... nor have i ever seen a stick insect. I understand 2 stick insects feed on red oak so if i plant that then prehaps i will see some


    BUT i DO have ambush bugs galore and they have the same way of catching their prey. And the odd crab spider. I LOVE crab spiders! if obly they wouldnt eat mu vavorite green metalic bees
    that makes no logic

    This has led me to Other insects that would be neat, Giant Millipides? Assasin bugs? How about growing some Rodidula and putting a bunch of assasin bugs im w/ it?

    Sounds neat to me..

    Cheers

    nepenthes_ak,
    i have seen praying mantis's up here in akron, so they should be able to survive in your area. i've seen egg cases for sale locally at larger garden stores. try looking there if you're interested, or buy them on the web.
