Wacky Pest Wednesday: Praying Mantis

 In News

Good Wednesday to you, Tri-County Pest Control fans, and welcome to our new edition of Wacky Pest Wednesday!  This week, we will be covering the praying mantis.

At a first glance, a praying mantis may seem frightening, but they are actually cool little critters.  Despite their menacing look, they are a great addition to the exterior of your home for keeping out unwanted pests, such as mosquitoes, crickets, and dragon flies.  Some large mantises can even take care of a rodent infestation for you!  They are friendly faces to have in your garden too, for warding off various vegetation pests.

To answer the often burning question about praying mantises: No, it is not illegal to kill them.  It is just highly advised not to, as they can be much more of a benefit to you than a nuisance.

So there you have it, a little bit of fun fact on the praying mantis to help get you through the rest of the week.  We’ll see you next week for another edition of Wacky Pest Wednesday!
