    My Falcon is asleep finally! Anyways, thats what I thought, could have sworn they were very toxic to VFT's as a long time ago there was a discussion about them being toxic. Anyways, see the later guys.

    As to giant fireflies or tiney vfts, it's the bugs. We have many many spiecies here, but most are around 1 inch long.[/QUOTE]
    Well most of my traps are around 2" long, making your 1" lightning bug a perfect size snack for my vft's. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Well, I didn't get to try it out, because by friday every trap but one had caught a bug on it's own. (One had the wing of the bug sticking out of the trap, it look ed like a fly.) As for the beetle, the trap it was in seems fine.

    My VFTs are outdoors and sometimes snag a lightning bug. Hasn't had any harmful effects.
