Right this is what I do! I havent read the rest yet,but maybe others do this too .
I treated myself to some carniverus plants from " jersy direct " they were not cheap but they were a decent size and ready for feeding . Only thing you need to do is keep the plant pot in about 1 inch of rain water and they must not dry out. I bought the indoor ones but you can get them for outdoor and they ARE supposed to stand below zero conditions.
I use a see through wide topped plastic bottle with a cap,I put the bottle underneath and knock them into it . You have to be quick cos the bliters fly . AND THAT MY FRIENDS , .................IS LUNCH FOR MY PLANTS ! wait until you have a good number. It doesnt take long .
I'm so cruel ! but after you have put in about 10 at once into the same funnel you can actualy hear them squealing !!! AND this is where someone might put me in the loony Bin - I stand there saying to my plant " enjoy your lunch cos these lovely orange beatles have eaten there last meal ......"
so the lesson in this is........ the beatles have eaten my plants so in return my plants have eaten the beatles - afterall ......alls fair in love and war !!!!!!!!!!!
I ask you my friends Am I going loopy or what ?
PS. Just read the top letter about smell it may work but this one didnt which I tried for the same reason ., . I planted from Arum lilies family "Dracunculus " - These stink and I mean stink so dont try it . It made no differance whatsoever. Might give the garlic a go though -will try anything once in the aid of gardening.
