What To Do If An Ootheca Hatches In Your House

I don't know the answer.
I went upstairs for my nightly brown recluse trap check/hunt. Little shadows lined the baseboard and it took a little while to figure it out. They were newly hatched praying mantises!
We have kept egg cases several time in hopes of seeing the babies pop out and haven't gotten to see it.
So now...we have hundreds/thousands of praying mantis babies on the third floor. I am excited to see how cute they are running around. I am also pretty scared since we have kept them as pets before. They are terribly vicious.
Then there is the Brown Recluse problem. Who would win?
