    Looks like there is nothing to do but isolate the infected and spray everything. Sorry.

    It's slow to take over and doesn't really seem to do much except cause unsightly red spots on the leaves.
    My plant produced a good sized, non deformed pitcher while infected with these pests.

    I also had this scale (tropical whitefly?) on some plants form Hawaii. Heavy spraying with Orthene SP took care of it. Luckily, it didn't seem to spread, but a couple of prophylactic sprayings were applied to the neighboring plants.

    Barry-Rice's way :
    "Whitefly: These seem to be mostly seasonal for me. I bet they can be controlled by insecticides. When I have had these in my greenhouse, I found that by shaking the infected plants, the whiteflies take to the air in panicked flight. Then by waving a large sundew in the air, such as D. capensis, all the whiteflies were taken care of nicely. After a few of these treatments, the infestation was decimated. "

    Take immediate action - spray/dunk plants thoroughly. If the lower stem/roots become infested, consider taking a leaf cutting and incinerate the rest...

    If it is a scale you might want to give the Bayer advanced products a try, Ive used their Rose and Flower version with great success on CP's for other problems, plus great success with scale attacks on outside cacti

    FWIW, here is an article of it being used to cure a scale (mealybug) attack on orchids (under the trade name "Merit")
