I have been noticing that a couple of my Sarracenia have holes, and black marks as if you burned paper with a magnifying glass. I have kept that in mind, and have been looking for aphids anywhere on my plants or in the pot ever since I noticed the issue. Today I was saying good morning to my plants (as I always do), and noticed an aphid on one of my S. "Judith Hindle" pitchers. I took it off and killed it, but I wonder if there are any more aphids that I haven't seen, and there probably is. When I got that Sarr in the mail, it had a little cut in it (either from aphids, or from a delivery accident), and since the pitcher has grown, the cut grew with it (or the aphids kept chewing at it).
I read the thread on the Venus Flytrap Care Questions page and saw how to solve an aphid problem, but wouldn't that be for really bad issues like an infestation? The issue in my opinion is bad enough to be addressed. Would there be any way to prevent more aphids from eating my plants? Whenever I check on my plants or look at them in general, I never see any aphids or harmful bugs. Any tips and help would be greatly appreciated!
