- Small D.Melanogaster Fruit Flies
- Curly Wing Flies
Why We’ve Selected These Items:
A popular food choice for young praying mantis are fruit flies. However, even older members of certain species prefer significantly smaller prey than themselves, such as ghost mantis and empusidae, which do well on fruit flies. If you find your mantis needs something a little bigger, mini-mealworms are hardy, long-lived livefood insects perfect for aggressive species such as the giant Asian mantis. Others opt for flies, moths, and aerial prey, so we’ve selected curly-wing flies as they are readily accepted by fussy-eaters.
All praying mantis nymphs.
