Unexpected and incredible prayers have answered the call. ~ Wanda Kubat-Nerdin

 

 

The Praying Mantis will emerge from their cocoon as soon as other insects they consider food, show themselves. Yesterday was the day as 100's of little ones made their way into the flower garden among the many varieties of pink, yellow, red, lavender Roses, Snapdragons, Daisies, pink and purple Clematis, Hollyhocks and more.

 

These tiny creatures, if they survive in the great outdoors, will grow to be several inches long and become stealthy hunters, often camouflaging themselves to be unseen by the naked eye.  Masters of remaining motionless for long periods of time, a 180 degree head rotation and ability to snatch food from the air, they are most respected.

 

Hiding in plain sight is an attribute for the Praying Mantis but not necessarily for those in the real estate industry. New agents who wish to get the most exposure with little effort or commitment and half-heartedness will be soon taught a valuable lesson. That approach doesn't work well in nature or for a successful business setting. 

 

It can mean the death of a very short lived career!

Hello Wanda, Your knowledge of these hunters are amazing.  I let it up to my wife but she does not do gardens only lots of flowers beds.

My parents had told us when growing up that praying mantis' were protected or endangered (I don't remember which). We saw them quite often on our property and would move them out of the way so they would be safe. I just looked it up and found to my surprise that they've never been protected or endangered, but many people thought they were. Interesting!

Great story Kat Palmiotti! They are a necessity in any garden to naturally rid the pests without harsh chemicals. I enjoy walking through and finding them among the foliage.

We get several species each year William Feela. They are necessary as we do not use harsh chemicals for pest control.

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! A collegemate of mine once had a Praying Mantis egg sac hidden away in her dorm room unbeknowst to her. They were adorable when they hatched, but she was finding them for weeks!

Morning Wanda.

How many new agents have hit the ground hard knowing they had a new way of getting clients, just to find out their system did not work?  Stay with what works, a hard lesson to learn

Cutting corners where it isn't feasible will be very telling further down the road James Dray. For some a dead end!
