    My house has a resident population of fruit flies, so my Neps catch many on their own. I am however, tempted to offer some carpenter ants I have around, too.

    Anyone ever try cockroach? I have not, as I suspect they are too large for a nep to handle. I have colonies of Madagascar hissers and Dubia.

    My nepenthes catch large American roaches. While they can easily handle one or two, any more than that and the pitchers usually rot. Either way the smell is quite overpowering.

    You can easily feed a nymph of either species to your pitchers. I've kept both species, but now I'm only keeping Orange Head Roaches.
