I just noticed this brown spot this morning and from everything I have read they are pretty common from bugs and stuff but the other day I noticed a little blossom? Thing that falls from the trees. Well one somehow managed to make it’s way inside the 4 inch pitcher. But I’m wondering if it might be what’s causing it and it shouldn’t harm it right? It would be like having a salad with your steak or fly dinner lol

Shouldn't be a cause for concern. Probably just the insect soup in there.

Ok so I now have 2 smaller looking spots looking like holes forming. Same plant And I look inside and I think the fly it caught gave birth an there is little tiny maggots inside the pitcher. These tiny maggots aren’t going to chew and cause this are they? I think they are maggots anyways

I wouldn't worry to much the fly larva as far as i know they will not feed on living tissues, they were used to clean wounds on humans not that long ago. Only thing that makes holes in my plants are the big bumble bee's. And the plants are fine even with an escape hatch.
