    How to use "Mantidae" in context?

    The mantidae, or mantids, are a large and diverse family of insects, which includes many familiar garden pests. Mantids are usually small (5 to 12 mm), but some species can reach a size of up to 30 mm. Mantids have elongated bodies and reach their maximum size in the nymph stage, when they look somewhat like miniature adults. Mantids have characteristic segmented antennae and eight legs. Most mantids are herbivorous, feeding on plant sap or root Vegetables. Some, however, are predators that feed primarily on other insects. Mantids are well known for their amazing abilities to jump.
