    Ive fed 2 traps (2 different plants) rolly pollies a few weeks ago....both traps are now dead. I think its because of their #### shells. I dont really like the idea of buying bugs (theyre frickin bugs!) and all i can really find around my house are rolly pollies...it sucks!

    Hi Josh

    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.

    Suzanne,

    i live in austin tx, i could put em outside. But ve been growing indoors under some flouro's. Its been working REALLY good so id kinda like to stick to that for now. I get a few fruitflys from various other plants i grow but they dont trigger the traps. My P. primuliflora takes most all the fruitflys anyway.

    freebugs=good :)
