    A couple of my traps have had bugs enclosed in them for about 9 days now...the traps are fully sealed and closed.

    Any ideas how long they usually take to open again?

    Thanks

    Does 9 days sound a bit dodgy then? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Depends on how big a bug was caught. Takes me about 9 days to digest after thanksgiving! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    As long as the trap isn't turning black, I bet it's ok...

    One other thing...how warm is it where you are? I have noticed my VFT's go into slow motion when they are chilly.
