Praying mantis in Kona Hawaii.

I'm down at the dive shop today. It's just about ready to open, I need to pick an official "open" date to start manning it full time. We've got a couple things to do that are easier done before we're open, and Bob gets back from Thailand this week, so it'll probably be between the 10th and the 15th. We'll finish everything up working around charters this week.

So one of the things about Hawaii, it's kind of buggy. Lately we've been getting these little green grasshoppers showing up at the house. They're kind of annoying, they like TVs, computer screens, and occasionally faces, which can be irritating when you're trying to sleep. Last night Pat had a praying mantis show up in her office, today while she was doing something on the computer one of the grasshoppers showed up and the mantis sprang into action.... that's one happy mantis.

do you know if there are praying mantises in oahu? I LOVE praying mantids as pets and I can't find any. the confusing thing is that they were here the last time i was here, but now i'm here again, and they aren't!

I'm assuming they're there. We see them here from time to time, not all the time.

They are in Oahu. I have one on my plant outside.
