Hello again, I've taken a few photos to post for update.
I am seeing major improvement, but pitchers still don't look as good as they did before this pest hit. I'll spray with the neem again soon.
After a few things of neem the new pitcher lids are less deformed. They are not yet 'normal' but they are less shrunken and curled.
The first pic is one of the pitchers that grew in before treatment, the next two pics are newer pitchers:
I no longer see any little orange dots on the plant, and the red colours are coming back.
I don't know if I'm outta the woods with your pest, but I think things are heading in the right direction!

Hey Panman I hope it works for you! In my case there was a lot of cushion moss, so it might have been more an improvement to ventilation than anything, but it definitely hasn't hurt! Good luck with your sarracenias.
