What is eating the pepper plant flowers?

Ssnewman added on July 18, 2012 | Answered

I have 3 pepper plants that are producing flowers, but something is eating the flowers shortly after they bloom. The plants are healthy and the leaves are fine, no signs of pest, etc. I have tried spray with an organic soap insect spray and it doesn't seem to be working. Please help.

It could be that your blooms are not getting pollinated, likely from heat, and are simply dropping rather than being eaten. This often makes it appear as if something is taking the blossoms.
