I recently got a baby Dente, with traps up to 5/8 inches long. I've got an abundance of fungus knats at home, and initially thought these would be ideal food.
Well, my VFT doesn't even notice with two live knats crawling right in the sweetspot of one of its traps! I finally got the trap to close using a strand of hair, but the trap was open again the next day, with both knats dead but untouched with no sign of digestion. Are they simply too small for the VFT to even care? The knats are about 1/8 inch long. Has anybody ever fed fungus knats to their VFT with any success? Thanks in advance.
PS - do VFT's eat ants?
