Aphids, blister beetle, Colorado Potato Beetles, corn earworm, European corn borer, flea beetles, hornworm,

leafhoppers, leaf miners, leaf rollers, nematodes, potato tuberworm, spider mites, whiteflies, and the occasional Pepper weevil, and pepper maggot.

Post a message to the Hot pepper forum for detailed information on how to control these pests.

However, most of these pests can be kept under control with Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques or with organic pesticides.
