Light is not an essential as they are nocturnal and will spend most of their time in a burrow.
If you decide to use UV for observation, use it with moderation, UV are harmful to any living creature so dont think havin it on 24/7..

Light travels faster than sound this is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Most mantids don't require extra heating as long as your room is around room temp.

also with repeated or constant use of a black light/uv, the pigment in thier skin which contains the amazing colors will fade over time. so if you get one, i wouldnt use it more than once a week, or maybe just to show friends
