Just to build on what has already been said, it is ok to test a trap here and there but I wouldn't do it regularly. Traps can only close a small number of times before they die, so triggering them needlessly can lead to an early death for the trap.
But now that the trap has a bug in it, it seals up for digestion, which can take a week or so. It is also fairly normal for the trap to die during the digestion process (especially if the bug was too big) so if it starts to turn black, dont sweat it.
