They are aborting due to incomplete pollination. Bumble bees do most of pepper pollination, although I've seen just about every kind of bee visit the blossoms.

The blossoms are self fertile, so you can pollinate them with a good shaking. I'd do it in the morning after the dew is dried.

I do my tomatoes with a middle C tuning fork touched to the stem of the blossom. That would be a good investment for future pollination insurance, if you lack bees.
