Q: I've got a problem with ticks fleas and earwigs in my yard. Will the praying mantis help take care of this problem?
A juvenile praying mantis will eat:
- grub mites
- and more
The adult praying mantis will eat:
- sow bugs
- and yes ticks too
I have a lot of ticks that lurk in the soil around my redwood grove and I'm trying praying mantids to keep them in check. I'd like to keep my chances down for getting lyme disease
