garden defender

I've seen several grasshoppers on our chard as well as potato beetles on our tomato plants. I remember hearing somewhere that praying mantids are good for eating garden pests such as these, so when I saw a mantis on a bike rack, I gently transported it to our garden to hopefully eat some of those baddies.
