My sarr has these odd bumps on them and appear to be some kind of insect. Any help would be appreciated

Definintely scale. Easy to get rid of. We've used acephate on it and it kills it fast.

Yeah honestly I usually neglect anything other than my neps. Lol. I think honestly they have been here for a while. That's about when I noticed the weird shaped pitchers but probably unrelated. Doesn't seem to bother the sarrs much though

Weird shaped pitchers is most definitely caused by the scale insect. I recommend you get rid of them before they actually start causing serious damage.

I second Benurmanii, get them out before they cause real damage and spread

You could even just scrape em off, buts it's not permanent. Use a systemic poison so when the scale eat the plant, they get poisoned
