Can you relocate her outside of the netting before she lays her eggs?

Oh!  Didn't think of that Embarassed   If I remember next time I see her I'll try -- I'm pretty good at moving insects Smile

I saw the female in the garden this morning, but couldn't figure out how to trap her without upsetting her.  Do you have any ideas for how to move her outside the netting?

Note, this is a photo from 10 years or so, when I first started. I mistakenly used wood chips as mulch on my Mel's Mix.

Butterfly net.  I made a rough net from bridal tool, wire coat hanger, plastic stake and tape.  Her little spikes will temporarily be caught in the netting, giving you a few seconds to get her out.  Maybe even over to where you want to put her.  PS:
I use the net to catch grasshoppers for dispatching.  I'm not as fast as I was a few years ago.   Razz  Kiwi's SFG Adventure - Page 9 Butter15

I don't have the time to make something, but it gives me an idea, surely I could just use -- very gently, of course -- a small amount of tulle in my hands.  I'll prep the tulle and give it a try the next time I see her.  Hopefully I won't be too late!
thanks

I'm very used to moving all sorts of insects outside by use of an upturned drinking glass and a piece of cardboard, but clearly that wasn't going to work in the garden.  I should have thought of a bit of tulle Very Happy

I frequently relocate praying mantis by just letting them crawl onto the back of my hand. Very Happy

Oh wow!  I guess I could try that, and if she resists, get out the 'heavy artillery' Wink

Yay, I saw her today, and she got on my hand quite easily, and I put her outside the bed perimeter:
Kiwi's SFG Adventure - Page 9 Pxl_2064

Then after a while I noticed she was still just standing there, and I wondered if perhaps she can't fly with all that extra weight, so I got her back on my hand and carried her to a nearby sheltered tree.  Hopefully she'll be happy there Very Happy
