Orchid Mantis

The orchid mantis is probably one of the most awesome ways to keep your house free of insects and you’ve probably never seen one.

The orchid mantis (Hymenopus coronatus) is a type of mantis that is native to the rainforests of Southeast Asia. And, based on its appearance, you can probably guess why it is commonly referred to as the orchid mantis.

But what you may not know about this beautiful little creature is just how good it can be at keeping your house free of insects. Check out what this orchid mantis is able to do to a common housefly.

Amazing, right? It never fails to surprise me how something can sit so still and then be able to react with such quick reflexes.

I don’t know about you, but I know I could sure use one of these around the house during the summertime.
