You'll never get rid of it. But I never really bother.  They're pretty. But best not to keep them with other Utricularia colonies in your collection as it can ruin them if it invades the pots.

Let it get a good freeze in the winter if you can, it should get rid of the utric.

I don't have any other Utricularia and don't think I would be getting any

It will need to be below -18C (0F) then. I've had it survive that

 

There's one Drosera rotundiflora in the pot, remove it when it's dormant and clean all medium off and re-pot in clean medium. You could probably do the same with those D. capensis seedlings as the roots will be thick enough by late autumn.

Interesting Fred, i'm surprised nobodies 'naturalised' it somewhere.
