    i agree with pyro, from what ive learned is that whenver something is sticking out of the trap they sometimes tend to rot

    I always find them in my mini bog for some odd reason. They eventually get capture by the traps.

    Mine do the same! I was going to post a topic asking what plants typically catch what insects (such as daddylonglegs and crane flies for a VFT or at least in my case). I'm glad I'm not the only one haha. Oddly enough the traps on mine don't rot whether the legs stick out or not...

    Men often hate each other because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they can not communicate; they can not communicate because they are separated.

    i never catch daddy long-legs! *pouts* they are really big around here (they have really long legs), and so they never get trapped. That would be interesting to see though XD

    It's strange though... it catches the body of the spider like it decided to just sit down in the trap... its weird...

    Typically ants and earwigs (especially) are caught by the VFTs. Never had a longleg. Sounds like a bummer if the traps rot though.

    Someone should point a camera at their Venus Flytraps over night to see how they get caught.

    You do realize this thread is over 3 years dead right? Still... I should post to the topic lol.

    Yes, my Dionaea catch HORDES of Daddy long legs. They catch 1 or 2 flies then BAM they catch a Daddy Long Legs then after a week another one tries to eat it's bretheren's body and he gets caught too! Most of them catch Daddy Long legs only. Every day there is at least 2 or 3 new Daddy long legs caught with the legs twitching. Everything catches them, from Petite Dragons to Typicals to Big Mouths. Their primary and main meals are Daddy Long Legs. Sometimes the bodies are just barely caught so they live for awhile. We got decent light winds outside where I live and they are out in the open so I've never had a single trap rot or show signs of rot. My Dionaea LOVE Daddy Long Legs!

    Since the last time I posted to this topic was more than 3 years ago, I'll post again . My VFTs that are forming ground hugging traps seem to catch the most while those with their traps up in the air seldom catch them. Just check my VFTs and none of them have daddy lonlglegs in them. The rains we got these last two days have washed the traps clean leaving only one with an earwigs butt sticking out. Seems it stuck its nose in where it shouldn't have...
