Try a product containing neem oil. It's a highly effective organic insecticide that kills and/or repels the large majority of common garden pests without leaving any chemical residue.
Sevin has been around for so long that many species have built up an immunity to it.

      Getty's  solution is a good one. I've used a form of his insecticide for years, and also inter plant a few of my hots, with the bells. Not sure which of the two keeps the pests away, but will just continue with my old tried and true methods. I've been told by a couple of old timers, (yes their are a few older than me), that in doing so you risk the chance of cross pollination resulting in spicy hot sweets.  I've never had that problem though. Also the nasty smell of Marigolds, inter planted throughout the garden, has always been a staple for bug prevention for me.  Hope you solve the problem, nothing better, and healthier than fresh, organic produce, home grown.   BOL

I was cutting the grass, when neighbor Ellie- May popped her head over the fence and asked me if I would be kind enough to prune her bush.

Take a glass of water, halffull, go through your garden and hand pick all the bugs you see and put them in the water. If you see benifical bugs like ladybugs,spider,or mantis don't use.Put the bug water in something you can use a hand blender in and add some olive oil and blend the bug tea until no lumps.Spray this mixture on the pepper plants.This helps in 2 ways.The bug released chemicals when caught/blended that warned other bugs and spores and fungi that would prey on speciesare attracted by the remains as are predators that sense the "chum" on your plants.Blend them real good.
