Is It against the Law to Kill a Praying Mantis?

Report as

No, but they are carnivores and can eat many garden pests and will not harm your plants so it probably is not a good idea to kill them.

No, it is not illegal to kill a praying mantis. They are just bugs and do not happen to be endangered, therefore, you should not be misguided. This is a rumor that has been around since the 1950s but for more information, visit http://insectidentification.org/.

It is not illegal but it's not nice to. If you want to get rid of it then just place it outside
