Boxelder bugs - harmless or damaging to sarracenia?

I've had a lot of boxelder bugs on my sarracenia the past couple weeks. I see some of them eating the nectar at the mouths of the pitchers but others are poking their proboscises around other places on the plants. I thought it was rather odd since I understand they mostly chew on maple trees and seeds. Should I be worried about them or just leave them alone? I haven't noticed any visible damage on the plants yet and my sarracenia flava x oreophila rubricorpora from the NASC auction seems to be quite adept at catching them.
