I saw this bug on my step. It was being attacked by bees that have a nest under my siding.
How you want your letter signed: Thank you.
This is a Chinese Mantis which is described on BugGuide as being: “Tan to pale green. Vertically striped face. Forewings tan with green along front margin.” BugGuide also notes: “Widely distributed in the U.S. due to the availability of commercially purchased egg-cases.” We strongly suspect you are mistaked that: “It was being attacked by bees that have a nest under my siding.” It is much more likely that its attackers were Yellowjackets or Hornets.
Thank you Daniel for getting back to me. What a great and interesting website. Best of luck to you. Once again Thanks for the information. Doug Oyler Erie PA
