    I have a book that says that when you pull the rock out you can pour carbonated water on it to drive them from their hole.

    When i first got my LR i started hearing the famous clicking noise and so i bought this trap from Dr fosters and smith and put it in. The next day i came home from work i had 5 mantis shrimp and 3 crab looking things that ive never seen before. Now to tell you my luck, im hearing the clicking AGAIN.........LOL.......WHAT THE HELL.

    I heard two pops last night before I started to change my water out, I was paranoid the whole time my hand was in the water because of that now ... and if I need to do anything with the rocks, I'll stare at all the crevices for like 5 mins beforehand to make sure I don't see anything moving

    You really dont have to worry to much about being hit by a mantis.They try to get to their borrow before fighting.Its when you get one cornered,that they are gonna stand their ground.
