    Definitely not preying mantis. They look like brown, dry spit and are asymmetrical.
    I once opened one like the one shown. Seems there was a worm like larvae.

    That is exactly what I was going to say a "zig zag" spider sac. ( that isn't their real name, but what I call them b/c of the zig zag pattern they make in their webs.
