    I cant tell you how often I feed mine just because I'll just have those moments when I go, "I wanna feed my v-trap." I have never had it outside long enough for it to catch it's own prey. When I force feed it I just do when I feel like going out, catching a bug, bring back to the v-trap and feed it. (Oh, Never feed it a japanese beetle. They always find a way out [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] ) Last summer I stuck one in just to see what happened, the trap shut on the beetle and caught it. A hour later I looked and the trap had sealed. The next morning the trap was still sealed, but the beetle was in my purple pitcher plant on the other side of the terrarium. I looked and looked and could not find a single way that beetle could have escaped. I hate japanese beetles [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] ! Well, later.

    If I find an insect in my room I just toss it into the tank to fend for itself. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] I threw two ants in the other day. One stuck immediatly to a sundew and the other one showed up three days later inside a VFT's trap.

    Those beetles are extreamly stronge. I'm rather surprised to find it didn't chew it's way out, but I supose it wouldn't bother if it could pry open the trap and squeeze out.
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.
