I am quite smitten with the ghost mantis, but I don't like the idea of feeding them flying insects. I can't stand blue bottles, but I have managed with fruit flies. Anyone have any tips on how to feed them blue bottles or had any luck just giving them crickets/locusts/small children?

Hi all, my little lady ghost mantis did the final molt the other day, so once she'd settled down again I grab a couple of pics.
Only once so far has she spread her wings and I didn't have camera to hand but def gonna try and get a pic of that as she's stunning colours when displaying.
I've got an adult male for sale who matured on the 02/02/2011 so he's ready for breeding. Raised from nymphs purchased on the forum. Haven't been able to get a female so I've had to sell both my males on. 1 has gone but I've still got another.
Will send for £12.50 Royal Mail first class at...
Just some random pictures I've taken since I've had them.
Notice the tiny silhouettes and the gigantic (normal) sized mealworm. Yes they really do start off that small :2thumb:
