I feed mine freeze dried worms. *I break off a little chunk maybe about 1/4 size the trap. *Once the trap closes I give it a litle squeze. *I do this a couple times ever hour for about two hours.[/QUOTE]
Thanks! I'm definitely going to give that a try. One question: by "worms" do you mean blood worms? or something else?
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.

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!
