    I have a major moth problem and no flys. Has anyone tried moths?

    I think it depends on the size of the moths/traps. The moth should be about half the size, or less, of the trap to avoid rot.

    Haha I just fed my VFT a moth and what do you know... there's a thread on it! Anyway, the trap turned out fine and as long as it's about 1/2 the size of the trap I don't see why not! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    welcome to the forums Shauntell [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Its fine to feed your plants moths right now and your plants will love them but around the fall they can become toxic to your plants because thats when they start to mate and they put out some chemical in them that will kill your plants.

    If you look WAY back into some of the posts last fall you will see that a few people ran into this problem.
