I don't see how it can pose a problem, unless the stink bug is bigger than the trap. So I would say yes, it should be fine to feed a flytrap a stinkbug.

Should be no problem as pieguy said but remember, VFTs do not HAVE to be feed at all.

i normally just catch them in a bottle trap and then throw them out with the trash. i thought it would be cool to do something with them. plus venus flytraps are cool and now i have a bit of money i can spend on things i dont really need.
