The female Preying Mantis also has a habit of killing the male Preying
Mantis after consummation of their courtship. (That should be clear and
ambiguous enough to make it past the most email filters.)

The Preying Mantis is a rather large bug
which ravenously eats other bugs
Folks buy them and release them in their gardens, hoping they will eat
the bad bugs that would otherwise eat their petunias
Presumably the Mantis bug tracking system is named in honor of this
creature. The irony that the Preying Mantis is itself also a bug is not
lost on anyone, especially when one can not get Mantis the bug tracking
system to do precisely what one wishes...
