    Stuff a little cotton in the opening of the pitchers and wasps won't go in anymore. Of course other insects won't be able to either.

    This may be a (extremely) long shot but there is a colony of ants that live in one of my bogs and I've observed them attacking and killing pests. It's like a trade off, they get an unlimited amount of nectar and little bits and peices of bugs that hang out of my VFT traps in return for protecting the plants. I've never had to use any type of insecticide on that one bog but I have on my others.

    I dont know how you could attract some ants to protect your plants but it has worked for me. They even take down paper wasps and other big insects. For the last few months I've been trying to get them to spread to my other bogs but no luck yet.

    Okay, but I have to warn you that ants, gnats, scale, and hornets are almost always the most commonly captured insects in my plant collection.

    Spray em with the hose an run over an STOMP em when they're flailing on the ground!
    Or
    Put out a plastic cup with a layer of honey at the bottom, when the wasp goes in to eat the honey, flip the cup and watch as the honey slowly suffocates the wasp...
    Or
    Spray them with spray glue, when they hit the ground, light em on fire(spray glues flammable)

    These are all mean things me an my friends used to do to Bees, Wasps and Hornets when we were kids.. it works though!

    Wouldn't Orthene kill the wasp pupa when they are chewing their way out? I guess this would be a little late, but at least the babies will not come back and repeat the cycle.

    Just submerge your plants totally in water for 3 or so days. They should be able to take it...i think...

    lol You can always try that if you've got a big enough container.

    Sarracenia can take flooding, worry not.

    Thooooough, it's getting a little late in the season, so not sure if it's worth it to do anything this season.
