    And about the spiders...everytime that I have tried one out...i get no luck with the VFT's. Now maybe other plants can handle them ( or maybe mine just can't).
    Anyway...I will feed them anything but spiders (and crayons)

    Ok, cool. I will proceed with the crickets. But bein the "newbie" I am to this mumbo jumbo.. how do you go about "pinching off dead traps" without disturbing them with your fingers. And if I said ta heck with it would it harm my plants? --Yeah and also, I wouldn't blow all my perfectly tastey crayons on my traps. They kinda make me nautius like spiders to ur traps and junk. Word to your mothas... yah hook ups have been phat.. peace im out mothatrapers..

    Don't pinch off traps. get a pair of scissors and cut just the trap off. You can leave the leaf. It will still help with its photo
    If you trigger a trap...it will re-open in a day or so.

    And each trap can only take so many opening and closings...after that it will either not work(respond) or the trap will die. Just cut the trap off like mentioned above.

    It you don't take off the dead trap...the only thing that would happen is that it would spread to the leaf and then you should remove it at that point. If you let it go further...the leaf will rot and you might get some mold/rot on the rest of the plant.

    My Green Dragon caught three daddy long legs this summer, and every trap died after a week or so of digestion... now, DDLL are not true arachnids, but they are highly venemous, and I think there is something in the that birds don't like, as with lady bugs (Which believe it or not I have about EIGHTY of running around in my enclosed deck right now! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] pest control

    My general assumption is that if it is poisonous, it won't go over to well in a flytrap, I have had better luck with sars and nepenthes catching DDLL (Or being FED as an expirement)

    For those of you wondering, DDLL are poisonous, but their mouths are so tiny and weak they can't break human skin... so they can't hurt you...

    But if you have ever had the misfortune of having your head brush up against those 'pulsating love balls' (Where about three hundred of the suckers join up in a ball and have a mating orgy) that is most disxomforting... the whole ball will swarm all over you... ughhh... I hate that...

    When was the last time you saw the term "pulsating love ball" in an otherwise G rated forum? I LOVE this sight! If by DDLL you are refering to Harvister mites then they do have some very strong defensive secretions, its the only way they can run around in the daylight without being eaten, however I have regularly fed both harvester mites and spiders to my VFTs and droseras without any problem although I suspect bacteria might set in on the legs then travel down into the trap if the legs are sticking out of the trap on the VFTs. The only problem bug I have experienced is large ants for droseras, killed the whole leaf in a matter of hours!, the VFTs will take them though. Speeking of arthropod defensive secretions, NEVER snif a millipede, don't ask, just don't do it! felt like 5 minutes before I could see and breath again! Ouch.
