    I get the biggest ant invasions with the first rain...they seem to move in looking for dry quarters.

    I don't usually feed my CPs, but we did have a bunch of flies in the house in mid-Fall and they all got a helping hand to find their way to Nep pitchers. I release many more insects from my Sarrs than I ever feed to the Neps. Whenever I see a live Halictid or Andrenid bee in a Sarr, I help it escape.

    I feed my baby N. Lowii frozen fruitflies I took home after a bio lab. For the rest, I catch every black widow I find in our yard, and freeze them. California seems to be having a ton of them this year, they're really slowmoving and easy to catch, plus theyre big and fat from all the bugs they eat.

    leads me to a question:
    Does everyone else thaw out frozen food for their plants? If so why, I do just because I read someone say you should.
    Im a terible speeler, but I are collage stodint.
