Hey everyone!
I was wondering, is there a way to make a trap or something like that to lure small insects to so i can use them as feeders.
(Yes i know i posted a similar post in the insects forum already, but this one is for actually feeding my spiders)
Any help/suggestions are welcome!

Feeding wild-caught prey to your spiders or other inverts is always a risky proposition. You never know when that fly or moth or whatever you just caught might be hosting parasites, have been exposed to pesticides, or have been eating something that might be toxic to your pets. It's safer to buy feeders from the pet shops or raise your own - that way, you can be sure they are healthy and pesticide-free.

Captive bred feeders are safest but if you want to catch your own, place a lantern on the ground at night in a good buggy area and wait and see what it attracts,
