The drowning technique might work but I've got a figure it's going to take days rather than an hour to drown the toothy titan.
The reason I asked earlier about the darkness is that some insects are attracted to light. I've sat up a halogen light hanging above a bucket of soapy water and placed it in the garden before to catch stinkbugs/shieldbugs. They are attracted to the hot light and fly into it, they are basically burned or stunned by the heat and fall in the soapy water to die. Another use for lights is one used for flea infestations...this usually involves having a clear bowl of soapy water with a light beneath it. Again, the bugs are attracted to the light, but rather than burning themselves on a hot light and falling they simply jump into the soapy water where the light is coming from...a good flashlight or even one of those "puck lights" under the bowl would work, probably. I was thinking that if it is very dark where you keep the plants and saw the bug that you might could try one of those tactics. Just some thoughts.
