    Most droserae like capensis, adelae... do not have large and strong enough leaves to catch bees. Some droserae like D.regia can catch bees.

    I wouldn't recommend feeding them bees, that would probably escape from the leaves. Plus, bees are beneficial insects.

    these plants go in the wild without catching much at all, but if you have to feed them try small, tiny insects, like those annoying tiny little black flying bugs that seem to be attacked to lights at night. As sp2k said, bees are great insects, get the anoyying ones eaten
