I'm slightly concerned about 3 of my big-mouth traps. Using the setting sun, i checked the contents of all the traps, and discovered that 3 of them had nothing in them - they were pouted out like they were filled with something - and upon giving them some light squeezes, they were very tense and hard.
In the other traps, thanks to the fact they are green, i was able to see the outline of some sort of insect... so i know for sure that they are empty.
Now, upon inspection of the 3 traps, they seem to be turning black at the very tips of some of the teeth, as well as black/withered around the edges of the trap itself.
What should i do? There are some fresh traps sprouting up (about 4 of them), and i don't want the old ones to block them out, especially if they themselves are on their way out, or if they are defective.
Should i just let nature do its thing, and wait it out? Or could i help the plant along in some way?
