    Crane flys don't even eat period! They live for a few days, mate and die. Adults have been known to hang around flowers though.

    That's just strange. How do they get that large so fast?

    On topic: Yeah, i fed a crane fly to my N. X Ventrata a few days ago, it loved it.
    Update: Parents convinced to allow me to keep greenhouse heated over winter. Most species will not be lost. Too lazy to update growlist.

    Crane flies do indeed eat, and are carnivorous. I admit I was wrong and they do not eat mosquitoes, but if you visit this link, you will find that NepG was wrong:

    Crane Flies

    And by the way, AlphaWolf, next time you point out someone's error, don't "laugh". I find that very offensive.
