    Stay away from Lady bugs if you know whats good for you.
    lmao! I know now that I should have never messed around with that bug

    well....I do use betta pellets. However, I always consider that bugs are better as they are more natural and thats why I try using bugs whenever I can.

    Stick with flys, crickets, cockroaches, small grasshoppers. Have been feeding those to my N. bicals for years and never had a pitcher die.

    If I recall, most beetles have at least mild chemical defenses. A brightly colored one like a ladybug is almost certainly poisonous to some degree. I've also read in CP cultivation literature that the heavy exoskeletons and shells of beetles often retard the digestive process.

    lol! cockroaches....well...aren't they a bit tooo big??

    yeah seedjar...I guess I realised that after seeing the rotting. Dammit....so basically any brightly coloured bug are to be avoided. I guess I will stick to small crickets, fles and ants.

    I know it's fun to kill brightly colored bugs... but ants are just as fun. Watch them drown and struggle!

    i gave a ladybug to one of my vft`s and it didn`t take to it well at all, however it was the easiest prey i could find. Just put it on my finger, lined it up with the trap and it walked right into the trap, oblivious to its imminent death. lol mouahaha, it`s fun playing judge jury and executioner.
