I have a bell and banana pepper with an abundant amount of tiny bugs on them. What are they and what can I use to irridicate them?
Thanks for the input!

Aphids love peppers. You can spray them away with water, cradling the leaf in your hand and giving them a blast on the top and bottom of the leaves. Don't forget the stems.

I agree Aphids, just spray them away with water.
