The trap contains a fluid of the plant's own production, which may be watery or syrupy , and is used to drown the prey. Research has shown this fluid contains viscoelastic biopolymers that may be crucial to the retention of insects within the traps of many species. The viscoelastic fluid in pitchers is especially effective in the retention of winged insects.  The trapping efficiency of this fluid remains high, even when significantly diluted by water, as inevitably happens in wet conditions.
