if you dont want to fw dip them u can make a trap for it u just take a soda bottle clean it out really good cut off the top and turn it around and silicone it back on so its like a funnel into the body of the bottle u just put a piece of shrimp in the bottle and leav it in the tank the mantis should crawl in through the hole and not be able to get back out if you try this let me know how it goes ive had good results with it
