I hope the pests you mean aren’t aphids, thrips, spider mites, mealy bugs and other common houseplant pests because CPs can’t eat them but these pests can eat CPs. I hope you meant wasps, stink bugs or something with similar size. As far my favourite CPs are VFT “Big mouth”, VFT “Red piranha”, VFT “B52”. My favourite Sarracenias are “Leah Wilkerson”, “Juthatip soper” and others that I don’t remember now. My favourite droseras are D. binata and most tubular sundews. I can’t choose which Nepenthes is my favourite but I like big hanging pitchers with a lot of colours.
