Bean Beetle Culture, Living



Callosobruchus maculatus. This easy-to-maintain beetle culture is ideal for use in a variety of reproductive behavior studies. All you need to keep it going generation after generation are beans such as black-eyed peas, mung beans, or adzuki. Females lay a single egg on each bean. The emerging larva then burrows into the bean where it will feed, pupate, then emerge as an adult beetle. Adults do not require any food or water; they spend their short life span of 1 to 2 weeks mating and laying eggs. Culture contains 30 to 40 mixed adults set up on host beans.
