Mantids at the Ballpark



Mantids have been plentiful this year with many reports of mantids on windows and landing on people’s heads. At left is a mantid on the hat of San Francisco Giant, Juan Perez. The mantid landed on his hat during a game at PNC park in Pittsburg. Mantids go where they can find food. Many insects fly about the lights at ballparks providing a lot of potential prey.
