    Dave,

    Daddylonglegs are primaraly scavengers so yes, the reason they get caught is that they are trying to take the remains from the traps and trigger them. The pain of it is that usually the trap can not seal around the legs well enough so the trap rots. But the legs hanging out makes for a fun site and if you want to gross your friends show them a recent capture and how it'll stil twitch its legs if you brush them

    (Yes I am a sick twisted person.)

    i agree with pyro, from what ive learned is that whenver something is sticking out of the trap they sometimes tend to rot

    I always find them in my mini bog for some odd reason. They eventually get capture by the traps.

    Mine do the same! I was going to post a topic asking what plants typically catch what insects (such as daddylonglegs and crane flies for a VFT or at least in my case). I'm glad I'm not the only one haha. Oddly enough the traps on mine don't rot whether the legs stick out or not...

    Men often hate each other because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they can not communicate; they can not communicate because they are separated.

    i never catch daddy long-legs! *pouts* they are really big around here (they have really long legs), and so they never get trapped. That would be interesting to see though XD

    It's strange though... it catches the body of the spider like it decided to just sit down in the trap... its weird...
