explain the basics of the bean beetle’s life cycle
The bean beetle (Callosobrauchus maculatus) is a tropical insect with a complete life cycle consisting of egg, larva (grub), pupa, and adult beetle. Adult females lay eggs on dry, stored beans, especially mung beans and cowpeas. Eggs are deposited on the surface of beans and hatch in 5 to 20 days. The larva makes its way into the bean where it feeds and matures. The larva develops into mature bean beetle that does not feed.
