I have attempted to feed my newly acquired sarracenia with small insects such
as mosquitos since my plants are young with pitchers measuring about 1/4" in
diameter at the top. However the critters seem too large to fall to the
bottom. I've tried adding a little water with an eye dropper to
get the prey to go down without any luck. Is there a better way to feed these
plants or should the insects eventually fall to the bottom as nature
would intends in the wild?

Thanks in advance
