Another Weird Bug... Shouldn't they be Hibernating or Something?


It's not like we live in a tropical climate here in Ohio, but we sure do get a variety of strange little visitors!
If anyone knows what this bug is, please let me know!
Thank goodness it was outside!

Yeah - it's a praying mantis. I consider them good luck. They eat lots of other critters and are especially good if you have a garden. Lucky you!

Agreed praying mantis. They are extremely lucky, congratulations and if your weather has been anything like ours in MD, all the plants and bugs are confused out of their gourds.

They are all over the place here in Durban, South Africa and are considered VERY good luck!! I often find loads of babies in my house. The babies can be as small as ants! Great for getting the mosquitos!!
