BEWARE: You May Have Praying Mantis Eggs On Your Christmas Tree
Not to scare you or anything, because praying mantises are one of the good bugs. But you certainly don't want them roaming around your house, especially 200 of them.
This Facebook post from Erie County, Ohio is simply a reminder that outdoor things do love Christmas trees, and they are easy to find and remove.
If you see one of these hanging on your Christmas tree, don't fret. Clip the branch and place the egg mass inside your garden.
In the fall, a female mantis lays up to 400 eggs in one egg mass, which becomes surrounded by a liquid that hardens and protects the eggs, according to an article published by Oregon State University.
While the praying mantis isn't necessarily dangerous to you or your pets, watching videos of "nature's perfect predator" in action is enough to make you never want to be anywhere near one.
