Whereas, this easily recognizable insect ranges throughout this State; and

Whereas, the Carolina mantid symbolizes the importance of the natural science of entomology and its special role in all forms of agriculture in helping to control harmful insects; and

Whereas, the Carolina mantid provides a perfect specimen of living science for the school children of this State. Now, therefore,

Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:

Insect designated

SECTION 1. Article 9, Chapter 1, Title 1 of the 1976 Code is amended by adding:

(B) A statement in substantially the following form must be printed in the next edition and all subsequent editions of the South Carolina Legislative Manual in the appropriate section:

'The State Insect

The Carolina mantid, Stagmomantis carolina (Johannson), or praying Previousmantis, was designated the state insect by the General Assembly by Act 591 of 1988, for the following reasons: it is a native, beneficial insect that is easily recognizable throughout the State; it symbolizes the importance of the natural science of entomology and its special role in all forms of agriculture in helping to control harmful insects; and it provides a perfect specimen of living science for the school children of this State.'"
