Generally, praying mantis will live only six months. Some species will live up to one year. The life of praying mantis consists of three main stages. These are the stages of egg stage, nymph stage and adult stage.

Egg holds shortly before winter. In the autumn season after fertilization, an adult female praying mantis will lay 100-400 eggs. She begins to secure the eggs on a safe stem or a sturdy leave with a frothy liquid that solidifies and turns into a protective shell for eggs in the winter. During this life cycle, praying mantis eggs are sought after, for example, for business, agriculture or scientific research. These egg structures are known as ootheca. For each egg in the ootheka there is space, like a compartment. To facilitate their hatching, these compartments contain small valve structures. Baby mantids come out of the casing in the spring, as heat naturally speeds up hatching.


The spring of the nymph blossoms. Once these hungry nymphs first feel the taste of the outside air, they will hang for some time around the egg case. As with the spider-lings, some of these baby mantids will try to eat at this time. After the dispatching, they began to hunt small insects, such as fruit flies. During this life cycle, small mantids are particularly vulnerable to other larger predators, and like many insects, not all nymphs will survive at this stage. In addition, fragile nymphs at this stage will not be able to cope with prey greater and stronger than themselves, and they will have to learn to be selective when they experience it.

The adult stage thrives in the summer. Young praying mantis will spend the end of spring and early summer months hunting and eating anything they will not eat in the first place. They grow at a steady pace, stretching their exoskeleton ten times in a process known as the molting, until they reach their full size by the end of the summer. Before every moth, the praying mantis often becomes slow and will not eat for a while. Usually they choose a hard branch to provide support to help a complex process. At this critical time during each fertilization process, the praying mantis can be particularly vulnerable to larger predators, since each may take several hours.
