comment How can I remove moles from my lawn?
The reference from Ohio State University indicates that they do not work. If you haven't tried them and only heard about them then I'm not sure your comment helps readers.

comment Can I use tap water as an alternative to rain water on my Venus fly trap?
@DavidRicherby excuse my typo. Dehumidifier water is described as "Generally, dehumidifier water is considered a rather clean kind of greywater: not suitable for drinking, but acceptable for watering plants, though not garden vegetables".en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dehumidifier#Condensate I would not use it on a Venus Fly trap as they are sensitive to water quality.

@ThatIdiot apparently humidifier water can contain more dissolved salts than is recommended for a venus fly trap. It is acceptable for non edible plants. Good question to ask! (hint...)

@insta if you remove the mineral content you have distilled water. Distilled water can be used as well. greenhouse.iab.uaf.edu/education/venusflytrap.php
