I live in Florida, and we are just at the beginning of the next wave of love bugs (Plecia nearctica). I was wondering if it is safe to feed these to my CPs. If so, my CPs will be super happy.
Thanks in advance.

Mine eat love bugs with no problems. Are you getting them already? They usually show up here around May and September.

My flytraps think that love bugs are delicious.

Yeah, oddly enough. I found a pair on my screened in pool enclosure. Let’s just say it they died doing what they “loved” :-) but maybe the sundew wasn’t part of their romantic plans.
