I just received my first VFT!!! *I read that they don't really need to catch bugs to thrive, but as I bought this to show my students, is it possible to catch my own fly, kill it and then put it in the trap? *Will it close, will it be eaten and will it be beneficial? *Also are all bugs okay as long as they are small enough for the trap to close around them? *For example can I put an ant inside a trap?
Last question for now: *Is sunlight through a window okay or must the window be open? *
Thanks for all your help.
