Found this on my bottle tree, so not on growing wood.
Each Mantis Ootheca should hatch into several hundred hungry baby Mantids. We wonder if they are a native or an introduced species. Introduced Mantids from Europe and China are larger and more aggressive than native Mantids and they may be responsible for dwindling numbers of native species.
