When I catch a fly I put it in the freezer for a couple of minutes, it goes to sleep and wakes up in the VFT - great. But live flies are hard to catch so I've tried other bugs and they seem to die in my freezer for even one minute. Pathetic compared to flies.
Anyway what do you guys do to make the trap close all the way. I use a bit of fine fishing line poked through the gap to tickle it but it doesn't work. (I would use angry smily here but it scares me). How long do you need to do it for? Any secret techniques?
