Keep Bean Beetle Cultures in temperatures between 75F and 85F. Keep at a humidity level around 50%. Bean beetles are a species of weevil that lay their eggs on black eyed peas. Black eye peas are high in protein, fiber, iron, calcium and even contain some vitamin A.They make great snacks for dart frogs and other herps that appreciate smaller prey. Each culture will produce hundreds of beetles over several weeks. A culture may not have bean beetles visible when it's received, but hundreds of beetles will emerge in the next couple weeks. Keep the culture warmer (up to 85F) to see beetles faster. How do I collect bean beetles from the culture Bean beetles like to climb. Insert a piece of paper towel, coffee filter, or cardboard tube in the culture. Once it is covered with beetles, remove it and shake the beetles off into a feeding cup. Why are there no beetles visible in the culture We ship the cultures after the first generation of adult beetles have died off and eggs have been laid on the beans. New beetles will hatch out within 2 weeks, if not sooner. How long will the bean beetle culture last Each bean beetle culture will produce beetles for several weeks after you receive it. We recommend using a Bean Beetle Culture Kit to make a new culture with beetles from the first boom of the culture you received. Each culture will boom 2-3 times. Where can I have bean beetles shipped to Bean beetles are considered a crop pest in the United States, and are regulated by the USDA. Josh's Frogs has the proper permits in place to ship bean beetles to most states. We cannot ship bean beetles to Utah and Hawaii.
