How to do IPM?
- Identify pests: not all creatures are pests. Proper identification helps you decide what to do about them.
- Keep records: records give information about past pest problems, so you know when and where to look for them and what to do.
- Keep pest away: maintain cleanness and deny food, water and shelter.
- Non-chemical methods: managed pests by setting barriers, trapping, physical removal (by hand, vacuuming) or changing physical conditions (e.g. moisture, aeration) to make an area unfavorable for pests.
- Use pesticides as the last resort: use least hazardous pesticides or application methods (self-contained baits, gels used as crack-and-crevice treatments, and exempt from U.S. EPA registration-25B). Use only if pests continue to be present and other methods are insufficient to manage the infestation. Regularly scheduled pesticide sprays are usually not necessary.

So now we have the ultimate answer, or maybe not. “Do Female Praying Mantis always eat the males?”, Published in Entomology Today and video from the Smithsonian Channel.
