Need help Identifying pest on peppers

Postby WbyNut » Jun 25, 2014 4:35 pm

I am growing bell peppers and noticed tiny white worm like bugs on my peppers. I can't seem to find anything on the net resembling them. I have been fighting gnats in the soil as well but these little crawly bugs on the peppers themselves are a new problem. Here's a photo that you can kind of see what I'm talking about. Any idea what they are and how I can get rid of them would be appreciated.
