Bug Hunting

We have baby Praying Mantises in our house and they're hungry! We had a vial of fruitflies which the little varmits quickly devoured. So today it was time to forage for tiny insects. My son and I went on a little nature walk with a bug catching net and critter container. We overturned rocks, looked on sticks, and dug holes in the dirt. We found plenty of worms, but the best we did on the bug search was two little potato bugs - certainly not acceptable for our hungry little bugs!

So I went online to the science store and ordered a vile of fruit flies. Thank God for modern technology!
