Bean Weevil culture

Bean Weevils are a small beetle that feeds on dried beans, as well as other dried peas and pulses. The larvae feed inside the bean, eating away at the inside until it is ready to pupate. It then makes a small chamber to pupate and emerges from the bean as an adult beetle. Even as adults these weevils are only a few millimetres long and are used as a food for any species that likes very small food items, much in the same way as fruit fly. They are ideal for small lizards, amphibians and invertebrates such a spiders or baby preying mantids.

They do not possess biting mouthparts and are completely non aggressive.

Bean Weevils are supplied as a culture containing adult beetles, along with beans containing feeding larvae. They should be stored at 20-25 degrees C in the containers they arrive in and will produce weevils for several weeks, if not months.  Eventually the larvae will have eaten all of the beans and no new beetles will emerge.

To use, the wood wool is gently removed from the culture and the beetles shaken into a plastic tub where they can be dusted with vitamin supplements if required before being used. The wood wool is then returned to the culture.

At Internet Reptile we're pround to be completely upfront and transparent when it comes to all our policies and have nothing to hide. For that reason we now include all this information right here on the product pages for you to review before placing your order.

Commonly asked questions regarding the order process, delivery and returns can be found here for your convenience.

  • What happens if my livefood order arrives dead?
    On the rare occasion, unfortunately this can happen due to extremes in temperature, humidity or where there are postal delays. Don't worry, simply email us a photograph showing the issue within 48 hours of receipt and we will issue a credit or a replacement order for you without delay.
  • What if my Frozen Food arrives defrosted?
    Becuase of the way our orders are packed and despatched using fast couriers this is unlikely to occur. In the event it did happen you can rest assured that as long as you were available to take the delivery on the first attempt we will fully cover your order at no expense to yourself. Simply email a photograph showing the spoilt food aand we will issue a credit or replacement order for you without delay. We regret that becuase food will quickly spoil if not unpackaged soon after arriva, we will not cover any instance where food has been requested to be left safe or redelivered for any reason (e.g. due to nobody being available to take delivery).
