    I've only ever seen Wasps chew their way out of a pitcher. That'd be my assumption as well.

    Okay guys, a picture is coming tomorrow. I was doing history homework for most of today, and now it's too dark for my camera to get a focus on it. I'll get one to you guys tomorrow morning.

    I've had plenty of wasps chew their way out of my pitchers too. Sometimes they don't quite finish the job and there's a wasp head sticking out for the rest of the season.

    Okay, here are the pictures. All the chewing is done where prey lands, so I think it might be wasps.


    And then something chewed the top of it also.


    I'm just wondering why it happens to one pitcher at a time, and not to the others until one falls.
    Lastly, something mangled this sundew tentacle if it helps.

    I'm more certain wasps are the problem.
    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.

    Any ideas on discouraging wasps in particular? I'd rather not have to put a net over the whole pitcher.

    You can stuff the mouths of the pitchers with poly floss.

    Okay. I'll try that and see if they stop being chewed up.
