Anyone had success with bottle trap?

I have been hearing a mantis in my tank for a while but with 900 lbs of rock have never been able to see him. Today my wife saw him for the first time so I know where he is hanging out. Has anyone had luck catching a mantis with a bottle trap or should I plan on buying a trap on line?

I removed his rock and flushed him out with fresh water. Hopefully you'll have luck with the bottle. All I can catch in traps are my skunk cleaners. Nosey nellies.

I am not sure of the rock he is in. Just the general area.
