I noticed that the leaves on my sweet pepper plant are getting holes in them.  I turned one leaf upside down and saw a bunch of worms (or so they look like worms) on them.  I'm thinking those are the culprits doing the job.  I've really never used any products that you buy to take care of bugs, etc., so I would like to know if there's a way to get rid of them without chemicals.  Are there any safe products you can use to get rid of those worms that aren't bad for a person?  I sure hope there's someone out there to help me out with this.  Thank you.
