    well if the cricket is able to escape you are probly feeding the pitcher a rather large cricket. try half of a cricket or buy "pinheads" they are small freshly hatched crickets that are easily digested.

    There has got to be a better way than pulling legs off a live cricket. Can't one just stick a cricket in a baby food jar and stick it in the freeer for about an hour or so? Does a Nep really care if the cricket is dead and freshly dethawed or live and kicking and doing damage down in the pitcher? What about those wax worms, somebody mentioned those. They sound like a viable option.

    I like the wax worms I use them for my larger plants. They wiggle and thrash about until they drown. So they woul dbe a suitble substitute for crickets. They also are softbodied so they will digest easier I would think.

    Crunch, why can't you pull the legs off? I do that sometimes with larger crickets I feed my leopard gecko so he can digest them easily.

    uhhhhhhhh, I can never ever torture anything, even if its an insect, let alone kill it. I once fed my VFT a woodlice and was overrun with guilt afterwards.
