Praying mantis

Asked April 4, 2018, 9:34 AM EDT

We accidentally brought a praying mantis inside our house a few weeks ago and now we have baby praying mantises all over my daughters bedroom. I have included 2 pictures of a couple of them. Is it too cold still to release them outside?

Here are the options. You can capture and keep them indoors. Feed them with baby crickets from a pet store. Or release outdoors and survival is questionable.
