Should I be concerned that there are more of this guys some where?

What kind of bug is it and how did it get here? Do you think a bug laid some eggs here? I mean I look at the plant everyday and I didn't see any bug yesterday.

Yeah I'm thinking waxworm. Probably some kind of moth or butterfly larva. If it eats your plants it's bad but if it gets eaten by the plants it's great. The ones that eat plants eat a lot of plants, you would see the damage if it was eating the plant, so if you don't see any holes in your leaves it probably isn't the type that would eat them.

Does that mean I'll see more of them?

thank you ! I think i caught this little sucker really early as I don't see any damage on my drosera. Or it may be too small to see. I killed it and gave it to one of my droseras :) thanks guys!
