Blumer, Beck developed the Bruchid bean beetle
, Callosobruchus maculatus, as a model system for inquiry-based lab classes in biology.
71) The synthetic (-)-18, however, could not attract the dried bean beetle
as efficiently as the natural pheromone.
EXPERIMENT Goal: To formulate a hypothesis and design an experiment to test your hypothesis.
Evaluation of vegetable soybean genotype for resistance to Mexican bean beetle
maculiventris in an integrated pest management (IPM) program to control the Mexican bean beetle
, Epilachna varivestis Mulsant, on snapbeans requires knowledge of predator susceptibility to recommended insecticides.
The strength and form of induced responses to Mexican bean beetle
damage also varies among genotypes, and these induced responses affect beetle feeding preference, mortality, and growth in the lab (Kogan and Fischer 1991, Underwood 1997).
The bean beetle
Callosobruchus maculatus is a facultatively aphagous pest of stored legumes.
Many studies were reported on the insecticidal activity of essential oils against rust-red flour beetle and dried bean beetle
(Shaaya et al.
The PI 417288 is a larger-seeded soybean MG V from Japan and is reported to have moderate resistance to Mexican bean beetle
(Epilachna varivestis Mulsant) defoliation (Kraemer et al.
Mexican bean beetle
, a problem in the eastern United States and some parts of the southwest, resembles the beneficial ladybug, but it has 16 black spots and no white marking between the head and body.
Sexually differentiated flight responses of the Mexican bean beetle
to larval and adult nutrition.
4: 15 THE ROLE OF ANTENNAE IN MATE DETECTION IN THE BEAN BEETLE
, CALLOSOBRUCHUS MACULATUS, Rabia S.
Another insect whose presence I know I will simply have to accept in my garden is Mexican bean beetle
1988) to be highly resistant to Mexican bean beetle
, Epilachna varivestis Mulsant.
Since very little is known about the physiology of the bean beetle
, Callosobruchus maculatus, they are an excellent model organism for inquiry-based labs at the undergraduate level.
