larva/worm/maggot problem. HELP!!!

fommy15(6)August 5, 2014

So my beautiful peppers all started rotting on the vines. I had everything from Jalapenos, red peppers, and Trinidad Scorpions infested. They looked to be all rotting from the inside. When I smashed a few open they were loaded with some kind of larvae or maggot. I need help quick! They have already killed half my crop. Any ideas?

Research fruitworm and pepper weevil.

Good luck.
