I received my VFTs a week ago. They are outdoors in the original nursery pots and set in a shallow pan with one inch of water and they all seem equally healthy. I do not feed them.
The Dente caught a fruit fly night before last and another trap was successful last night. This was confirmed (unmistakeble outline of the small fly) by back lighting the traps with a very bright pen light. At this rate it on schedule to capture eight flys a month. The Green Dragon and Common haven’t caught a thing. My questions are;
-Does the Dente have a more powerful attracterant smell or is it just more aggressive?
-Is it possible for it to over eat?
I would hate to see it begin to look like my girlfriends butter ball poodle…or worse yet …die.
