Raw cucumbers, raw zuccini, blanched zuccini, or raw yellow 
squash. The raw stuff lasts longer (2-3 days) and the blanched stuff 
will disintergrate in a day or two. It's also a good snail "trap". Get 
up about 4-5 am and yank out the veggies & snails. Most of the 
time mine are covered in MTSs. Otos, SAEs, as well as an other 
nibbler will enjoy the treat. My SAEs would rather have it anyway
