    Bug identification please!! HELP

    Should I be concerned that there are more of this guys some where?

    What kind of bug is it and how did it get here? Do you think a bug laid some eggs here? I mean I look at the plant everyday and I didn't see any bug yesterday.

    Thanks!

    Orange tortrix caterpillar perhaps. Get rid of it quickly as it will make short work of your Drosera. Grab it with some tweezers and squish it and feed it to a pitcher plant or VFT. Make sure it is dead as they can munch pitcher leaves too. You can search on "Orange tortrix" to see what controls to use.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
