These are all over my Bell Peppers. I have hot peppers next to them and they are only on the Bells.
That's what I thought but are they harmful to the peppers?I think in the USA you call them stink bugs.
Ok, thanks for your reply.It may be better to get advice about them from someone who lives in your country. We don`t have trouble with them here in the UK.
Yes, they are harmful to your peppers, all of them. While they are sucking out the juices from the pepper they are also depositing a chemical which rots a small spot on the fruit. The rot does not grow but the rot flavor inside the pepper around the rotted area grows larger. Those are stink bug but to be more precise they are shield bugs.Ok, thanks for your reply.
Thanks!!Stink Bugs. Dilute 1 TBsp of dish soap in a gallon of water. Spray the bugs. They'll be dead the next day.
Well, I've been spraying them with this mixture and they are still on my plants and actually more of them now. Any other ideas?Stink Bugs. Dilute 1 TBsp of dish soap in a gallon of water. Spray the bugs. They'll be dead the next day.
I tried it last year & it worked great for me! (Dawn dish detergent) In fact... they were still in the same place where I sprayed them.Well, I've been spraying them with this mixture and they are still on my plants and actually more of them now. Any other ideas?

Intelligence can be a curse you know. Once, as a very young man, I was cornered by a gang of eskimos, and found some arctic dessication effect on animal dung which I flung at them and they fled as if hit by kryptonite. I suppose it is WHAT you know but in your case I suspect the influence of WHO you know as @Tetters seems to have the even keel.I was getting bullied for sweets at school so I melted some chocolate and mixed in some caraway seeds.
The next day the bully filled his mouth with them before asking what he was eating.
I told him they were chocolate covered ants....
He never bothered me for sweets again
