A little while ago, I wrote about how I’ve seen a bunch of honeybees at school. Lately there have also been a lot of preying mantises.
They are often on the walls, maybe to catch bugs that are attracted to the outside lights. Sometimes they’re on the floors though, and then they’re often dead. Maybe the same thing that’s killing the bees is killing them? Or maybe people are just stepping on them.
Zounds – it’s like an insect zoo around your place. I like how on some websites there are people who don’t know what preying mantises are. “What is this bug? Is it dangerous?” Oh, to be in those times again…..
I hope no one is spraying stuff to kill those bugs.
Bees and preying mantises and.dragon flies my three favorite insects! Just have to see the last one now!
Praying manti?? (probably not, but I like it)
