    hi,
    i think these type of questions should be answered by yourself. you should make the judgement based upon your own morals and principles.
    I used to feed my VFT until few weeks ago. i used to catch ants and woodlouse (flies were too fast) however as the weather has warmed up considerably here in the UK i have placed the VFT outside near a plant. yesterday it caught 3 big flies all by it self.

    Someone once wrote a rule of thumb about prey being ~1/3 the size of a VFT trap. So if you have good-sized traps to accommodate the bee, it will be fine.

    Side note: Take a look at my signature. I think we have something in common.

    I agree. I like to eat my animals alive. There's nothing like freshness to bring the taste buds alive.

    well it seems we both come from two different ends of the spectrum, what do you say?

    kindest regards,
