Vine borer grubs suitable to feed Sarracenia?

I grew zucchini and pumpkins this season only to lose them to Squash Vine Borers. They are a grub of some kind of moth. I tilled the soil where the plants were growing to find more grubs in it. I am currently growing VFTs, Sundews and Sarracenias in plastic pots. I was wondering if it was okay to drop a grub into the Sarracenia? The pitchers are about 6 inches tall. The VFTsand Sundews are still small and would do that to them. Also what kind of bugs and or insects are okay to feed them at all?

The biggest insect i,have ever seen in any of my pitchers was a bumblebee,and for the vfs a daddy long leg.the pitchers will hold a larger bug of course.
