    Good news is they don't appear to be mealy bugs, thrips, scale, or aphids, which tend to be the worst pests, and if they were mites or anything else serious, you would have seen significant damage by now. Carnivorous plants attract bugs, many of which are harmless.
    Come to me flies and crawling bugs. This plant wants to give you great big hugs
    Aren't I pretty, don't I smell good? I'd come to you if I could
    But I can't so you must come to me, I'm sure we will get along splendidly

    In that picture, they appear to be feasting on the decomposing parts of the plant. It could be they are simple harmless decomposers, and not bugs that are preying upon your plants.

    I don't think the insects/mites are doing any damage, but it looks like there may be some fungus/mold growing on that leaf. I would worry about that more, as it may indicate that something isn't right as far as conditions go. How much light and/or humidity does it receive?
