Hi, I noticed that one of the new leaves one of my picther plants put up has a hole in it. I assume some bug did this...what kind of bug, if anyone knows?

Snails, slugs and large caterpillars are possible supects

Whenever mine have holes in them, it's the older pitcher in which a wasp or yellowjacket has gotten stuck in. They then chew their way out the side leaving a small (usually a bit ragged) hole in the side.

Yep I agree with a wasp story. Smart little boogers!
