Praying Mantid caresheet - Amateur Entomologists' Society (AES) Praying Mantis (Mantis religiosa).Photograph by Paulo Rodrigues. The Mantids are a group of 1,800 carnivorous insects (Order: Mantodea). Most mantids are from tropical countries although a few do occur in cooler climates. Their closest relatives are the stick insects, grasshoppers and cockroaches. Like their relatives the mantids undergo simple or incomplete metamorphosis; they do not have a maggot or caterpillar but go through several stages all of which look like miniature, wingless adults. Feeding Young mantids should be fed on fruit flies (Drosophila sp.), aphids or other small insects. As they grow they can be given larger prey, almost any insects (for example, blue bottle flies, grasshoppers, crickets, cockroaches) will be eaten. If you keep live food for your mantid then you should also ensure that the live food is kept in appropriate conditions (adequate space, correct temperature and humidity and access to food and water). Housing Mantids do not usually need to drink. Breeding
