Do manti do a better job of eating pests than ladybugs? Never had much success with those even when I follow all the advice I can find about then

Id say so, along with toads; my garden has never done better! Everything just sort of shows up every year. I usually use a completely organic topsoil compost mix at the beginning of the year and fertilize when i first transplant and everything does tits out awesome. Also, loads of mushrooms pop up in my garden.

Yes sir! Although my property has always been rife with mantids. I guess theyre a sign of good luck, if you believe in such things.

I have so many of these guys this year. Coupled with wasps and massive spiders, my only real pest is the swallowtail caterpillars.

I had a problem with hookworms earlier but this girl coupled with some garlic and hot pepper spray really did the trick.

Chili peppers scare those guys away.
