Answer: It sounds like pepper maggots. If there is a tiny hole and a small, white worm inside the pepper, it is a pepper maggot. The adult fly lays eggs on the fruit in midsummer. When the eggs hatch, the larvae (worm) enter the fruit. For control, Charlie Nardozzi recommends in "Vegetable Gardening for Dummies" to cover young plants with row covers, use reflective aluminum foil mulch to confuse the flies, and use yellow sticky traps to catch the adults before they lay their eggs. I hope this helps!
