Holes in peppers

Asked August 31, 2017, 8:58 PM EDT

I was wondering what insect was making holes in my peppers. I believe their larve is all over inside the pepper too. Thanks- Bob

We'd have to see the larvae or very sharp photos to identify whatever is causing the damage. Here are some possibilities: corn borer, pepper maggot, pepper weevil and climbing cutworms. Slugs sometimes chew holes in pepper fruits too.
