Where do you live? Can you put your flytrap outside? If so, it will catch its own bugs and you won't have to worry about it. When I got my first flytraps I tried feeding them and it was a pain and I didn't like it. (I fed pill bugs also but they didn't kill my traps). Then I decided to let nature do her thing and they caught LOTS of bugs (mostly flies) and I didn't have to mess with it. And remember, they don't HAVE to be fed bugs...they will do fine without.
