Hi all

A while back my CP's were suffering from mealy bug attacks. I
lost quite a few plants and in particular a range of Sarracenia.
The mealy bugs came back a few weeks ago, but so did a pair of
praying mantis - which now inhabit my collection. The mealy bugs
vanished (the mantis's got fatter) & I have even caught both
mantis's fishing for bugs in my Sarracenias. Seems to be quite
a beneficial relationship.
