The fly trap is fine if the insect is still in the trap after it reopens. The fly trap will take the nutrients it needs and once its requirements have been met, the plant will signal the trap to reopen. You can use a tweezers to carefully remove the insect. If the trap springs, do not worry to much. A few false springs doen't drain that much energy from the plant.
