    Well, I have converted my wife for sure into a CP lover; Had a bad fruit fly infestation in our kitchen so I put my D. multifida giant on the count right in some sunlight. Within 15 minutes there were 30 fruit flies vainly struggling for their lives. My wife wants more now [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Gotta love 'em. I had the same prob a couple of months ago, and I used my P. titan to clean them up [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] . Also reminds me of how amazed my family was when I got my alata some years back. I had just gotten back from a long trip to San Francisco and CA Carnivores with my new N. alata. I put it on my windowsill, and the next day it was covered in ants! The following day, they were all gone. Guess where.... all in the pitchers!

    LOL, that is a good heart-rending / happy ending story!

    D. capensis & D. adelae are also great fruitfly catchers!

    same thing happened to us this summer- I put out my D. binata complex collection in the middle of the swarm and the plants turned black with bugs, then grew like mad for a few weeks
