    Don't be surprised if the trap rots attempting to digest that thing. Over the course of this past summer, all 9 of my VFTs have caught at least 1 daddy longlegs and each and every one ended up a black rotten wad at the end of the leaf.

    I never figured it out [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img]

    EDIT: Some were brand new traps, too!

    In my experience, the trap rotting sets in whenever a trap does not have the prey completely inside. If the seals are compromised, it rots away.

    - what do you do when your bog is full? you build another. and another. and another. then you buy some pots. and some more. and some more. and some more. then you wonder how much it would cost to rework the hydrology in your yard to place your house on an island. -

    I think this is the first year I haven't seen that sight in my flytraps [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] . As for them rotting the traps, my traps never rotted after catching a daddy longlegs.

    Why? Did you cut off the legs?

    Hmmm, that experience has a somewhat disturbing resemblance to your avatar BCK...
