Feed them anything, flying food are best, you can even use your own caught moths etc from outside

Buy some fly casters online, for a good food source, or just use crix, locusts etc, making sure they can walk past the mantids resting sposts as they won't chase food around

A good rule is to just put different foods in every day and see whatt hey do and don't eat
