Well since summers over and finally I'm rid of the autumn housefly problem I need to feed my plants other things than swatted flies and japanese beetles. I picked up a bag of a dozen two week old crickets (about the size of two houseflies (or one very large housefly). I froze em last night so I can use them whenever a new trap opens but I'm curious how many crickets can be used in a pitcher which is apx 4" tall? I have (in the past) only fed one housefly to each pitcher about 3-5 days after opening and things have done well but I'm curious about using more to obtain bigger/better results but I am cautious about it because I don't wanna blacken the traps like I did with just a few drops of bloodworms (mosquito larve) and whole milk.
Any of you with bigger pitchers have any tips on how many and how large the bugs are that you feed your plants?
