Great pics. Gotta give a shout out to a fellow Coloradoan! I've noticed the same trend in prey capture with my VFTs throught the summer: a progression from earwigs to craneflies to small wasps to lastly blue flies and grey striped flies. Most of my Sarrs filled up on migrating Miller Moths in the past few weeks. Thanks again for posting the great pics.
We always have bad wasp problems mid-summer till fall. My plan is to get a carpet of VFTs growing to take care of a good number of them. A lot of times, they are scouting for nesting sites. I'm tempted to make a back drop from some cardboard with a hole in it so they come in to investigate and in the process get to "visit" the plants around it.
BTW, I've partially covered the seeds with plastic wrap. I left a bit of a gap on one side so there is some air circulation. Maybe that'll get the seeds to start....
Thanks! Where in Colorado are you, spdskr? I too have noticed the feasting on Miller moths by my sarrs recently!
