How? My vft rarely catches its own bugs and most of the time when the traps are closed it hasn’t caught anything.
My VFT's are about a 90%/10% closed/open.
I just let nature take its course. Plus, it doesn't hurt that I'm on the edge of city limits, so there is no shortage of bugs that come to visit. (Behind my fence is a corn field,
and woodlands beyond that) I even got a Dente five days ago, and she caught her first meal yesterday.
Northwest Tennessee is close enough to their natural range that they must like the weather. It may stimulate them to be a little more outgoing in attracting and catching their meals.
Today, after posting that mine are 90% closed, a few opened up overnight, so it's more like 60% right now. By tonight, most of them will be closed again with a tasty morsel sealed for all eternity. Well, for a few days at least.
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes the reason is that I make bad decisions.
