How long do praying mantis normally live?? Each summer I have just one in my window box, didn't know if they lived awhile and he came back each time. Smiling

Unfortunately, they don't live very long. 6 months or so. It sounds like you've had babies around and they come to your very attractive window box. This one, I think, is a male.

I love them. We get one every year. It's mostly females I see.
