Happenings in the insect world

I wonder if the benefits of praying mantises (preying upon insects) are really such, when they are universal predators and will prey on our valuable beneficial insects as well? Has anyone done a study on the long-term effects of introducing praying mantises. Generally I don't think it's a good idea to encourage the sale of either this predator or a beneficial such as lady bird beetles, when they're collected from the wild.
