    Mites are a problem because they are not an insect technically. So usually require a miticide. You might consider neem oil. It should work on mites but I have not used it on CP's so test on a spare plant or two first.

    As for lighting growing 100% indoors. I would consider high power compact fluorescent 65w+ or metal halide.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    I've used beneficial insects to control thrips before with good results.
    You might review this website and check prices. They have alot of info and I think it is quite helpful. Some pest controls are relatively cheap $3-5.00 for thrips but over $50.00 for soft scale and $1500 for wooly adelgid control.

    I have used neem oil with no ill effects, but that is not a blanket safety statement to all CP's.

    I have also drowned mites and aphids by submerging the plant underwater.
