Bean Beetles

Bean Beetles
Callosobruchus maculatus

  • Bean Beetles are a very fast breeding small live food
  • They require little effort to culture, needing only beans
  • Adult beetles live only a couple weeks but in that time lay hundreds of offspring directly in the beans
  • Larvae will fully develop inside the bean and only emerge once they reach adulthood about 30 - 40 days after seeding
  • We culture this species exclusively on mung beans. After every hatch more beans are added to the colonies.
  • The adult beetles can be dusted with calcium and offered to many smaller insectivores as a unique treat or backup feeder to fruit flies and other small live foods. Fogs, chams, geckos and mantids love these!  
  • Sold as 16 oz starter colonies
