    My one VFT has caught a spider, an earwig, and a really fat bug I cannot identify all on it's own. My backyard is has a lot of flies at the moment (I need to clean the rabbit cage!) but the flytrap caught none! Hopefully they will turn redder, attract some flies and live upto it's name "Venus FLYTRAP"

    Have you tried live gammarus? I've seen them at the aquarium shop, sold in little plastic packets with just enough water to wiggle in.

    Feeding the critter to your trap would probably be a relief to it, after that!

    I use the freeze dried tubifex worms that come in blocks. Make sure that when you feed them the piece is small and when you sqeeze the trap that the trigger hairs rub against the food.

    I'll try that too! That's the exact same thing I feed my goldfish!

    I had lots of trouble catching live flies for my 1 Vft last year. Its just come out of dormancy and is now double the size compared to last year, and i have just ordered 2 more Vft, a South West Giant and a Royal Red. I have to buy some live food this year i think.................
    Anyone know what small crickets eat ? I can only buy these 500 at a time, i havent got that many traps to feed..............

    They eat wet bread, and also...each other! Raising them will prove smellier than you think--and they are likely to die en masse as a fungal infection runs through the tank or whatever you have them in.

    It isn't worth the trouble.
