    Callosobruchus maculatus is a species of beetles known commonly as the cowpea weevil or cowpea seed beetle. It is a member of the leaf beetle family, Chrysomelidae, and not a true common pest of stored legumes has a cosmopolitan distribution, occurring on every continent except Antarctica. The beetle most likely originated in West Africa and moved around the globe with the trade of. Pediobius foveolatus (Crawford) (Fig. 1 and 3), is a tiny exotic parasitoid wasp that is used for biological control of Mexican bean beetle, Epilachna varivestis (Fig. 2), an important insect pest of snap beans, lima beans, and sometimes soybeans mainly found at .

    Summary Pediobius foveolatus has been used for biological control of Mexican bean beetles in soybeans on a county-wide scale for the last 20 years in Maryland and New Jersey. Pediobius foveolatus is a tiny wasp -- 3 mm. or about 1/9 of an inch in length -- that is a parasitoid of Mexican bean beetle larvae and squash beetle larvae. Parasites Parasites of lady beetles can be loosely grouped as endo- and ectoparasites. coccinellids such as the Mexican bean beetle Epilachna varivestis Mulsant (Epilachninae) (Schroder, , ). eggs. Thus, human redistribution of H. convergens for aphid control outside of its native range may introduce new microsporidia to.

    In , the Mexican bean beetle program avoided over $ million in pesticide costs in New Jersey, and eliminated the need to apply nea pounds of pesticide. No New Jersey soybean growers have had to spray to control Mexican bean beetle since , avoiding the need to apply over 1 million pounds of pesticides in the environment.

Growers soon learn to cope with it, in part at least. There are a number of things one can do to help reduce damage besides using insecticides.

The field colonies increased rapidly. Some destroyed 80 percent or more of the beetle larvae the first sea- son. The larva of the Mexican bean beetle is a fat grub 5/16 in long, yellowish-orange in colour with long spines. The eggs of the Mexican bean beetle are small yellow ovals that are laid on the bottom of leaves.

If Mexican bean beetles have historically been a problem on your farm, you will very likely see them again this year.

They may be pests on snap beans, lima beans, and, more recently, soybeans. While they are not a pest on every farm, some farms report significant damage from these pests and have to take action to prevent crop loss. Using biological control can reduce the need.

Early season releases of Mexican Bean Beetle parasites, ladybugs and/or green lacewings helps reduce bean beetle populations, but must be repeated yearly. Spray plants with Surround WP to prevent Mexican bean beetles from feeding and reproducing.

Spray the soil with Beauveria bassiana in early spring to reduce the adult population. Parasites and Predators of the Mexican Bean Beetle in the United States - Ebook written by Neale F. Howard, Birely J. Landis. Read this book using Google Play Books app on your PC, android, iOS.

Mexican bean beetles are part of a family called “ladybug beetles.” Ironically, ladybugs are beneficial and spend their time feeding on aphids.

But their devious cousin, the Mexican Bean Beetle is a pest who destroys. The other name for this insect is Epilachna varivestis Mulsant, which sounds much more ominous and therefore is more fitting.

Lima and snap bean varieties that are currently being used to culture the Mexican bean beetle (MBB)and its parasite, Pediobius foveolatus (Crawford), were examined to identify the most efficient. They attack the Mexican bean beetle, reproduce, control the numbers of the beetle throughout the growing season, and die in winter.

Example B: Seasonal inoculative releases of a South American flea beetle are used to control alligatorweed in more temperate areas where the plant has become invasive. There is a parasitic wasp that lays eggs inside the larvae of the bean beetles, just like there is a parasitic wasp that lays its eggs inside aphids.

Sadly, the bean-wasp doesn’t seem to hang out in my yard, even though my garden gets attacked by Mexican bean beetles nearly every summer. Arbico Organics sells “mummies” (Mexican bean beetle larvae that contain wasp.

Se pueden encontrar a través de los Estados Unidos exceptuando la costa del pacífico.Mexican Bean Beetles Mexican Bean Beetles feed on the foliage of soybeans, snap beans and lima beans, reducing the crop yield.

Sincewith support from the New Jersey Soybean Board, the laboratory has been releasing a parasitic wasp, Pediobius foveolatus, in New Jersey soybean fields to control this pest. The wasp, which cannot survive NJ winters, attacks the larvae of the Mexican bean ."The Mexican bean beetle, unlike its insect-devouring cousins, feeds only on bean plants.

This beetle is an unwelcome sight in soybean fields where adults and larvae feed primarily on the undersides of leaves. The Mexican bean beetle sometimes is a pest of garden beans as well," Bessin said.

The adult beetle is brown with eight black spots.
