    Peter, how big was the hornet? Looks like the ones I caught, only that it was wiggling a scary sting too, not only its butt. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    mwhahahaha...my VFT caught (no actually I caught for it) a kind of flying ant/bee (three of the same type) and they all BIT HOLE IN MY VFT!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] Grrrrr...I'm never feeding my cps anything with such large FANGS anymore! It was trying to bite out the bars of its jail (the teeth) and almost suceeded in getting out, well almost. It got its head out but I poked it back in with a dropper. Actually I tried to drown the insects by putting water into the trap while the trap is wtill partially open, but ofte the VFT just drools it all out from the sides of its 'mouth', hehe [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    Noooo...three of my biggest traps they were...

    Hey BCK how'd you get the trap to seal with the...is that a roach...still half inside the trap? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] Huh?

    Ya, they are fun, because their little legs stick out and wiggle for an hour or less.

    My terrarium is fed 6-7 flies every 2 days, so I am forced to catch flies. I have made a compost heap in my backyard and just walk over to it and wave my net and boom...instant lunch!
