How hot is too hot for egg sacs

Asked June 15, 2019, 7:14 PM EDT

I bought my praying mantis egg sack from my local Fred Meyers. It's been over 90 degrees outside last few days, and it's been hanging out in that temperature on the fence without any shade. Do I have any concern for my praying mantises? I bought the praying mantises 2 3, weeks ago back then it was high 80s.

Hi, I believe those are the Chinese mantis (Tenodera sinensis). That temperature range should be OK. If it stays hot, it would be good to offer some shade.
