My house was filed with legions of cockroaches. They were everywhere, in every corner. Each repellent I used didn’t help. Then i prayed to Saint Francis of Assisi so he would deal with his animals. The Saint might have called them because the next day the cockroaches disappeared.
Hello mantis lovers! Just a quick little heads up, my shop Blindfawn has a bunch of new beetle earrings and hair clips available. As fellow insect enthusiasts, I thought you might be interested! Take care!! ♥
The pray mantis is the apex predator of the insect
world. Which is saying a lot when you have spiders and scorpions
running around, and that’s not mentioning the other horrors that
await in the undergrowth.
With camoflauged skin , it stalks and awaits it’s
prey patiently who once they come to close they are snared by the
serated front legs !
Just about any other smaller isnect is fair game
for these guys, including their own species, esepcially after
mating. ( not really a fun time)
If their was one insect
that I wouldn’t want to be our human size, it’s not the spider, it’s
this guy. You just wouldn’t see him coming and when you did, it would
be too late.
Quick Facts : -Live around 12
months in the wild.
-Can grow up to 15cm long
-About the same size of a tea cup
- Able to turn their heads 180 (see excorcist)

place , as we were removing the invasive plant species around the
