Mealworms, bloodworms, and crickets are some of the best foods for the Venus flytrap. Mealworms are a good source of nutrition for Venus flytraps and can be purchased from many pet stores. They are also a good source of calcium and iron. Crickets are one of the best sources of protein in the diet of a Venus Flytrap. You can find them in many grocery stores, but you may have to search a bit for them.
In the fall and winter, however, you will want to wait until the last minute to purchase them, as they will not be available for purchase until after the winter solstice (December 21st). You will also need to make sure that you have a supply of fresh, frozen, or frozen-in-the-bag (FITB) cricket pellets in order to feed them to your pet.
