A Virginia lady says her Christmas tree has left her a present that has stored on giving, however not in a good way.
Molly Kreuze says more than one hundred praying mantises have infested her house.
She says they hatched from an egg hidden in the branches of her tree.
Kreuze says she’s not grossed out by the insects.
As an alternative, she is feeding them fruit flies and storing the mantises in a shoe field till she will find them a new residence.
As for the longer term, Molly says she plans to buy a pretend Christmas tree.
