DIY Praying Mantis House

Construct a new home for your preying mantis! Cut four pieces of wood to the height needed, drill a channel out if two sides of each pieces and attach a wood screw to the top of each pillar. Cut two wood squares for the top and bottom of the bug house, drill a hole in each corner of the top panel and assemble the frame. Glue wood knobs to each corner of the house for feet and a knob on the lid for a handle. Cut three pieces of glass and one piece of metal mesh to the sizes needed for each wall, cut thin pieces of wood for the bottom of each wall and put the walls in place. Make a tall structure for your preying mantis to climb by cutting a piece of wood for the base, drilling a hole into the center and gluing dried sticks or strong leaves in the hole.
