A Praying Mantis Egg Case

Treasure in a flower pot

I was cleaning up flower pots over the weekend and found this after I dumped one out.

It’s a praying mantis egg case, called an ootheca.

I hope it hatches! I put it in a warmer spot. The nymphs emerge if there are about two weeks of warm temperatures.

Here’s a preview of what it might look like.
