Abstract:During 1923 the pepper weevil (Anthonomus eugenii) was found to be present in several pepper fields in Southern California. The insect was most abundant during November and December and practically all of the late peppers in the infested fields were destroyed. Injury to the pods resulted in decay which usually started in the seed cluster anc1 in small peppers the growth was checked and the pods distorted.
