I've never tried catching mantis, but I do have an idea for getting them out of burrows... Get a really big turkey baster, fill it with water, stick it into one end of the burrow, and squirt it really hard. I bet that'd get any mantis out of its burrow, and it wouldn't involve sticking your finger into a mantis burrow!
Works pretty well for my pistol shrimp, and those are really shy about coming out.
