That Little Bugger!

So today I found a bug inside one of my Darlingtonia pitchers. "Isn't that good?" you might say but it was not an ordinary bug, but a very ferocious and hairy caterpillar. After repeated attempts with a toothpick and some manicure scissors I finally retrieved the wretched insect from its comfortable home. Unfortunately for it, I killed it; unfortunately for me, the damage was already done.

Hope no one else has this problem! Good Growing!
