Bell Pepper worm/caterpillar

wadebuggMay 3, 2011

Can anyone ID this worm/caterpillar and help me figure out how to prevent any more of them from eating my bell peppers? I dusted with wood ashes after I pulled this pepper off, and it's been pest free since then (probably about a week ago). Please help.

I have looked numerous places and about all I can find is that this might be the corn earworm/tomato fruitworm.
