spider mites be wee little red arachnids.  so small, they are very hard to see
with the proverbial nekkid eye.  you know when you've got 'em because they
cause your plants' leaves to curl inside out.

your problem sounds more like pepper maggots, i'm thinking.  pepper maggots
are usually white  or yellowish white while the adult flies are yellow striped
with dark bars on the wings.  that's just a guess.  if that's what they indeed
turn out to be you can use rotenone or malathion on them.

good luck!
