You admitted it?
Stuck a bunch of praying mantis egg cases behind the radiator in the bathroom. They all hatched at the same time. I can still picture Mom scooping them up with a 3 X 5 card and dumping them out of the window with me going, "Remember, it's illegal to kill them."
Of course I admitted it. I was never the brightest child but I was (am) honest.
Hmm, hatching praying mantis eggs in your room? Nice method of pest control...think of all the bugs those things must have eaten. You were just doing your part.
