I was hoping this article would mention another semi-myth: Praying mantises eat "bad" bugs. My understanding is they eat just about any bug they can catch, including monarch caterpillars. I watched one hunt and catch a honeybee, hiding in the stems of Thai basil while the unsuspecting bee worked on the flowers. Thanks for this blog - I look forward to it every day!
