Succesful mantis hunters wanted.

I have been hearing clicking in my tank so I have been on patrol for a while. I have seen two different mantis so I purchased 2 of the xterminator traps a while back. I have caught bunches of hitch hiker crabs but no mantis. I have been baiting the traps with a piece of shrimp. Any suggestions on a different trap or bait etc. On a positive note I saw a pistol shrimp molt yesterday. Never knew I had one.

Sorry, no advice here. But if you catch some and are willing to ship, I have a home waiting for one (see sig).
