Non-Toxic Insectiside

While taking advantage of a wonderful Fall day to do some yard work - I noticed this fellow walking along my retaining wall. The kids found two more of similar size.


Now I happen to have one of North America's busiest Box Elder Bug transit stations. It is also known as the back half of the outside of my house. So I decided to "relocate" the largest Praying Mantis to a back wall.



The Praying Mantis immediately recognized that it was in the Land of Milk and Honey - or at least the Wall of Easy Prey. Chomp!


Now if I could only convince a few more to stay there for a week or two...
