    The bites look like grasshoppers. or some kind of insect damage. If you spray I'd be very careful. In fact, I wouldn't spray at all. As for the tips, I wouldn't worry about the brown tips to much on the phyllodia. They happen to everyone. As for soaking your plants, it's better too much water then not enough. I've found pitcher plants in the wild growing in standing water with no way to ever dry out and they were doing fine. As matter o fact they were more robust and larger then those growing nearby not in the water.

    The leaf with brown at the end looks normal. It's just old.
