Q.Bell Pepper Plants

Anonymous added on September 5, 2011 | Answered

My bell peppers are covered with a clear sticky substance, also tiny white (almost clear) spots. The leaves seem to be affected also, but not as much as the actual peppers. I’m in southwest Arizona. I have destroyed the plants this year, but wonder if there is something I could do to prevent this again.

It sounds like the plant had scale. This article should help with keeping them away in the future: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/scale-bug-how-to-control-plant-scale.htm
