    Treat it to some bug dinner (hammer some roachies in your kitchen), and when it's full maybe, just maybe it'll leave..

    Praying Mantis is supposed to be a lucky living thing. It usually will pray for the homes where it stays, and that's why it is known as a "Praying" mantis.
    If you chase it away, you may never get the luck you seek during your lifetime.

    In that case, quick... go out and buy a pedestal and some incense! While you're at it... how about a roast pork too?

    and the female mantis will probably be a few times bigger than what TS has in his bedroom

    I never get praying mantis in my room... only a few lady bugs and flying ants... and there you have a mantis and you are bitching about it!

    Pass it to me then! I can shoot macro.
    I am not a photographer, just someone who happened to have a couple of cameras.

    purchase a rhino to stomp on the praying mantis

    but after that, please don't start thread asking how to get rid of the rhino

    Tell me about it... it's not everyday a Praying Mantis drops you a visit... Roachies, flying ants, Ghim-guehs, plenty of them... If it was my kid, he will have a field day with the Mantis, and an excuse to drag my DSLR out to shoot.

    No need to purchase. I am available. Just tell me when, and I will be there!

    And no need to get rid of me, I will get rid of myself once I have shoot plenty of macro with the mantis, then throw it out the window.

    Woah, wait ...

    Capitalize on that! If its a common occurrence to you, lure more exotic insects and organise a macro shoot at your place

    You dont see any shoot organizers offering anything else except xmm rite. THIS IS IT
    Man greatest tool. The imaginative mind.
