    Hey guys I have a question about my infestation of fleas. Is it okey to feed dead or dieing fleas to my plants?? A vft, D. capensis, and a P. esserianna. I got them of my cat before we gave her a bath. The fleas are siting in a jar looks like 20 or so. Some of them looks like there dieing, they have been siting in the jar for two days. I just want to make sure that they are weak so that they wouldn't be able to jump out of the jar or off my plants....

    I don't see any reason why you can't give them to your plants. I heard that a guy put a sundew in the middle of a room with a light over it at night. The fleas would jump toward the light and would land on the plant. I can't remember where I heard that though.

    Just make sure the fleas haven't ingested any flea killer if you use that on your pet. I don't know that it would be much of a meal for a VFT (not large enough to stimulate the trap to close fully) but the plants that eat the smaller bugs might be ok.
