    So check this out... I was admiring my traps this morning, and found a big old hole in the center of one of my traps that was closed last night. Guess that bug decided he must get out, and ate himself a hole to crawl through! Has anyone ever seen this before?

    I have had a bug rot a hole into some of my traps. But I have never seen one eat through it! Do you know what kind of bug was in there?

    Hi Meagan,
    I've got a trap on one of my plants with a hole in it, too. It happened about two weeks ago. The trap hasn't died though so I've just left it alone.

    I kind of had a thing like this happen only the bug chewed through the cilia of the trap before it made a complete seal around the bug. But i cursed the bug and poked it back into the trap with a toothpick before it was totally closed hehe. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Japanese beetles can do this. My biggest plant digested a small one , but it did plenty of internal damage to the trap first, and I'm going to lose the trap.

    My poor tea roses. Black spot, japanese beetles, arrrrg. I hope the plants make it through the winter.

    The same thing happend to me, i was looking at my trap and there was a large hole that i found.I grow my vft in a terrarium and i think i found the convict,it was a small beetle. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] He died a horrible death to some of my other plants [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] so i hope it doesnt happen again. I was also wondering what i should do wit the trap. Leave it alone or trim it.

    Thanks,
