What would the bodycount of a killer intelligent Mansized Mantises Be?

I know there are many species, some relatively weak, strong, fast, slow, and flightless and flighted, but I will keep it broad.

How many kills could an 6 foot long bloodlusted mantid get before it is slain if it suddenly spawned in? Like in say a moderately populated American suburb/town?

I think most could fell several peeps before being taken, but they are usually slow when on land, but if they can fly I think it could make up for it with flight speed, camouflage, and their exoskeletons. And smarts, they tend to be quite intelligence(they have average human intelligence here)

I do not give a Kentucky Fried Cluck what the Square-Cube Law says, I want my Globbam muttertuckin' 6 foot mantis!!! Fluck off!!!

    0. Beyond everything else everyone already said, they don't have fricking hands. Even if they do find some hapless moron and manage to attack him before he snaps the bug's shitty neck off (built to detach), the arm blades are going to slice right through the soft human arm meat and let the prey escape to get medical attention and call in someone with a shotgun.

    Best the mantis could do is grabbing little old ladies walking down a wooded trail.
    Dogs would sniff them out and then the local sheriff would shoot it.
    No way something that big and obvious could hide in the woods.

    Mantises are good ambush predators because they are the size of a few leaves at their largest which means they can camouflage with pretty much anything on their scale. In a suburb at 6 feet tall, they'd stick out like a sore thumb because 80% of suburban lawns are grass, trees and scattered small bushes. Even if some of the bushes are large enough to contain a 6 foot tall mantis anyone with the bare minimum of awareness would be able to notice that there seems to be a massive 6 foot tall leaf hiding within the bushes. They'd also only be able to at best kill one person, and at worst only disfigure them because if they were to catch someone, that person would be screaming for help because being eaten alive is really painful.

    america is full of guns
    square-cube law is important here, moron, because even if it can survive its newfound volume, solves the breathing and circulatory problem, the exoskeleton is not going to be light weight, and because the muscles need surface area to attach to and increase volume of the exoskeleton doesnt scale fast enough with the surface area increase since the mass is exponential. so the animal is going to be slow, nor would it be able to fly, unless it had a wing span of about 30 ft, 5 times it your presumed size
    and because of all the guns once it gets shot, its done, because it wouldnt be able to stop leaking blood.
    if it was europe, maybe you get a couple people

      Let us assume it can still move equivalently as fast. I think it would be able to get a few, at least 5. I mean I think the exoskeleton could tank a few small caliber bullets, shotguns and rifles would shred it though.

          by the time you would notice a mantis it'd be too late. they don't chase prey, they sit there, hanging from grass, upright between herbs and wait for something to come close. a human sized mantis would be mimicking branches up in trees, we would perhaps hide in alleys or inside houses that were left open, drawn in by warmth and smell of prey. you wouldn't be able to even reach for your gay little pistol

            no it wouldnt, its really hard to hide something that big especially against humans who are good at spotting really big things especially in a tree, humans cant spot smaller things among the brush and leaflitter, because theres too many outlines, which is why people go blind to snakes all the time.

    You've made a similar thread a few days ago but I don't mind because I like the idea of large mantises a lot. I also think it could "fell" several peeps before being taken.

    Bug blood don't clot. A single bullet does the mantoid in eventually.
