I have been checking them and they've been good so far, but just starting last week, they started to change color and now that they are changing color, they are getting mushy spots and rotting from the inside out! Why is this happening? What can I do to stop it?

This was an orange pepper - looked almost good from the outside, but the bottom was mushy - here is what it looked like when I cut it open:
And here is a green pepper - hasn't even started changing color yet, but look at the dark spot - this spot was toward the TOP of the pepper and was a little soft:
But this is what it looked like on the inside!
And this was the other side of the pepper that looked fine on the outside, but...........
Ewwwwwwwwww!!!!!!!! How did this maggot or whatever it is get in there??? There weren't even any holes in the pepper, I don't understand! I studied the pepper before I cut into it - there were no holes!
How did this happen and how can I stop it?
Are the parts of the pepper that weren't affected edible???
