Dispatched a Praying Mantis
The four unacceptable crawlies in the house are roaches, praying mantis, hornets and houseflies. Among these, the praying mantis is the rarest that I wonder if I should even blog about this. Unlike roaches, most likely it would be years before we can count the next one.
Praying mantis can deliver a nasty and bloody bite. I saw it first hand many years ago when a friend snatched one with his hands.
This one was killed last night. The kids spotted it resting on the ceiling.
