While I was cleaning up an area 'out back' I came across a praying mantis and her egg case! So excited. The only issue is that the egg case is attached to the lip of a plastic flower pot. What should I do with it? I tried researching but very little was available on egg cases. Do I partially bury it in my compost heap under an old milk crate? Leave it in the open (doesn't seem like a good idea)? I'm stumped.
