The ones that I have at the allotment in the polytunnel are catching loads, but I do have to donate half a side of the tunnel to fruit and veg plants, but the tomatoes seem to attract loads of flies.  The ones I've got at home though are catching very little yet this year though.

There are not too many flies (and wasps for that matter) here either.

My Sarracenia purpurea hasn't caught anything this year yet, but one of my VFTs is having a feast - 5 out of 6 traps are full. Judging by the shape/size of the insect inside I'm guessing they're all hover flies (I keep seeing loads of them around my plants). None of the other CPs are mature enough to catch anything bigger than a fruit fly.

Can you just drop the maggots into the plants?  Do you need to wait until they've turned into flies?

I got bored after putting two or three maggots into pitchers. Lol Besides, I like to think of it as the fly version of 'The Running Man'. Which ones will make it and escape out through the roof vent...,

Really nice looking plants. Do you feed all your traps? And how often?
