I trim my Sarr pitchers in the winter as well, as soon as they stop producing pitchers. I find that, in addition to mold problems, mealy bugs tend to make their homes at the base of dead pitchers.
Thanks for the sarracenia tip, in that case I will go and trim off the dead pitchers. I think i've def heard that tip before.

I Am the Terror Of the Night!
Nepenthes - I trim pitchers when they are COMPLETELY black/brown and have sat for a while. Or when any fungi makes an appearance.
Venus Fly traps - I trim off everything a few hours before going into the fridge for the winter, generally around the end of October.
Sarracenia - Just like the VFTs, everything is trimmed a few hours before refrigeration.
Okay, well we all know who the winner of this thread is. XD
