    Hey Warpig,
    You're safe with ants...as long as they are 1/3 the size of the trap or smaller. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    My vft keeps on eating ants...In some ways I wish ants would not get caught. I enjoy seeing my vft traps open with nice reddish color to it. O'well...Ants will not hurt your vft.

    So far all of my vft's have eaten ants. one of them ate two huge carpenter ants. How long does it take for the trap to reopen.

    Hi again warpig,
    It depends on how big the meal is. Sometimes they can re-open in 3 or 4 days....sometimes 10 days.... As long as the traps are still green (or red), they're still healthy. It just takes something I have very little of.....Patience! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
