The Pitcher Plant is a carnivorous plant, much like the Venus Flytrap. It catches and eats mosquitos making it the best natural bug zapper ever. The leaves are called pitfall traps that features a cavity filled with digestive liquid. This plant will lure flying and crawling insects by bribing them with nectar.
