Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Leaf Beetles - Bean Weevil/Pea Weevil
Class:Insecta Order:Coleoptera Family:Chrysomelidae


Pea and Bean Weevils, Subfamily Bruchinae, Leaf Beetles, also known as Seed Weevils. Females lay their eggs in soil and the larvae feed on leguminous plants roots, like peas and beans. Adults can be spotted in Summer, before seeking a place to hibernate in the fall. There are a number of different genera and species in the Pea and Bean subfamily. I frequently find these brown Seed Weevils in the center of Black-eyed Susans boreing into the head of the flower.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
