    Your plant should come back, but the new pitchers will also be ravaged unless you can eliminate the aphids.

    Some pesticides harm sarracenia, but Sevin, Maliathon, or Orthene are proven. I use ones containing pyrethrins.

    When using pesticides on CPs try to use the powdered forms to mix in water. Premixed pesticides can have other ingredients that can harm your plants. Aerosol cans in particular should be avoided.

    Always use the recommended amounts. Test on one plant before applying to all your plants if the effects of a particular product are unknown.

    Speaking of Pyrethrum, as a preventative,would it be effective to plant Chrysanthemums amongst the CP's? Also, would Marigolds be helpful? Not that Marigolds have Pythrethrum, but some gardeners plant them because their odor is a natural repellant.

    It IS hard to tell from the pics, but, based on your location and the fact that you are only mentioning Sarrs, it could be thrips as well....all of the suggested pest sprays should still work, though...
