Hello! So as you've probably already guessed, I am once again dealing with thrips attacking my sarracenias (very annoying).

I would greatly appreciate some of your tips and suggestions on how to get rid of these things. What kind of anti-pest sprays should I use and such?

Thanks!

I use acephate 75 for all pest issues aside from spider mites and it quickly kills pretty much any pests. It is quite inexpensive and easy to apply with a spray bottle at a mix rate of 1/2 teaspoon per 1 gallon of water.:

Thanks, Matt!

Should I avoid spraying the substrate with this stuff or can most CP's handle it without to much of an issue?

Spray directly on the plants. I've never ever had any issue using any sort of insecticide on carnivorous plants sprayed on the plants or medium at the recommended dosage. Not even a slight setback. Spray away!
