Moving garden furniture around I have found Praying Mantis egg sacs in the underside of the moulded plastic chairs. Research has told me that up to 400 nymphs could emerge from them in spring/early summer. I'm not sure whether I want 400 'mini-manti' scattered across my verenda. The death warrant remains unsigned whilst I consider the pros and cons.
