In that case, I would try spraying just the traps if you can get an accurate enough spray. I read something that indicated the traps may be receptive to nutrients even when not triggered. I wish I knew what paper that was in. I've been wanting to try but haven't gotten around to it yet.

Yes. Use at 1/4 strength every 2 weeks to help induce pitchering.

Put some inside the pitchers. It's a good substitute for insects.
