This stage is therefore a threshold marking the end of insecticide application and occurs no later than five days after last blooming. Bruchinae Beetles described in After about 10 days 1—3 weeks depending on temperatures bruchs, larvae hatch and bore directly throughout the pod walls and develop within the seed. The larval stages of B. Fields near overwintering sites such as woody rifimanus herbaceous environment, and storage facilities, present increased risk of B.

Such measures will be especially efficient in storage as most B. Early harvest could therefore be recommended for best control measures in storage facilities.

Before entering its pupal stage, the larva cuts a circular cap.
