depends how big the hopper and the pitcher is. If it was a narrow tall pithcer like minor or flava, dont, i might get stuck and rot or eat out. If its a purp, you can try if the bug is small enough and if it would drown quickly. I would try using crickets (pin heads ofor small plants, medium for larger).
Actually RubraRubra, put grassshoppers down Rearend first! Grasshoppers as all insects do, breathe through the cecile or air holes on the sides of their abdomen. So when they are put rear first they would quickly drown. But yes, you could put then in head first as it wouild confuse them and then they might get stuck and simply die of exhaustion.
And they squirt out that stinky yellow goo. Not pleasant.
Ever been bit by a labybug? My neighbor claims she has.
One thing I'd like to try feeding sarrs is mealworms, the adults or larvae. Anyone tried this? I found a site that sells cultures of them (and Daphnia, which I was after): http://www.lfscultures.com
