    LOL Fruit Flys make The BEST FOOD!!!
    1st, they are easy to grow and easy to start new cultures (im talkin THOUSANDS of flys)
    2nd, they fall asleep easily in about 30-45 secs in the freezer. (put them in a zip lock bag and place them in for about 30-45 secs in the freezer)
    3rd, They Make GREAT food to VFT. when they are aslepp, take a small spoon (i use a 1 mil dia. spoon) and scoop like 7-10 flys. then, pop them in the traps (or anything else u need to feed) and BAM [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
    for VFT, put 7-10 in the trap and make sure that when it closes, the flys cant get out. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    I've been finding some nicely sized Capenter ants and have been having fun every day enticing one onto a sheet of paper to feed to my awaiting plants. Man, something as simple as watching the trap snap shut never seems to get old! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    I feed mine little helpless flies that got smashed by the evil demon horticulturist. I stick'em on a toothpick, put it in the trap, and when it closes I wiggle the toothpick to make it think the fly is alive, then I slide the toothpick out.

    Oooh. That's pretty nasty. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] I read that the more a vft eats, the less red it becomes. Is this true?
