    Ants seem to be able to escape the grasp of sundews. You would need to pre-kill them if you wanted to have success feeding them to your dews, although that is more trouble than it's worth.

    That hasn't been my experience, though I suppose it depends on which species you're talking about. Some definitely hold on better than others.

    Pitcher plants are ants killer machine. VFT is a tricky one, I fed mine some ants before, some traps were fine but some just went black. Sundews and pinguiculas are good, but it really depends on the size of those ants you have around your house.
