    In my collection they fill up within a week of opening and rot soon afterwards causing me no little frustration. I have taken to stuffing inorganic cotton balls into the pitcher mouths soon after they begin to feed, with varied success - but hey, it's better than nothing!

    Yeah, my Sarracenia get their fill of Yellowjackets and flies, but very rarely get to the point where they fall over.

    Well, I know my minors certainly got filled to the throat with houseflies when I was visiting relatives in NC (bought them there.. the minors, not the relatives [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img] ), and the pitchers eventually started to rot. Totally normal.. so the answer to your questions are yes and they rot.

    Houseflies.. that Goldsboro military base in NC gots lots!!!!!!

    Hope this helps!

    Ladybugs wedged themselves into my juvinal pitchers for hybernation last fall, the traps looked like pea pods, lol.
