Great article. Funny that Texas would have a mosquito!
We occasionally have a praying mantis in our yard and they are tenacious. I see it literally stand up to our miniature pinscher. Fortunately the dog has not killed it. She has batted at it with her paw and the mantis fights back. Great fun to watch.
Very interesting article, Toni. Quite bizzare of Texans to adopt a mosquito as their state insect. The pests are prolific in Mississippi, and the state does everything it can to reduce the mosquito population.
