I do not believe the plant you describe is insectivorous. Generally, the plant would have some anatomical structure for the digestion/absorption of prey (e.g. mucilage, hair triggers).

I'm not sure what it might be, but there are quite a few plants that kill insects without actually consuming them. They might eventually evolve into carnivorous plants, but it sounds like what you have are swamp plants that are sticky enough to kill pests.
Try Google Imaging "sticky smelly swamp plant [wherever you live]" and see if any of the pictures match.

It is not a wet ground plant. Does most of its life far from water
