A study of the biology of Callosobruchus chinensis (Linn.) infesting stored pulses (grain legumes) in India



A study of the biology of Callosobruchus chinensis (Linn.) infesting stored pulses (grain legumes) in India



Indian Journal of Entomology 62(4): 319-322



A study of the biology of Callosobruchus chinensis (Linn) was made on cowpea and green gram seed at room temperature, i.e. 28 + 2 degrees C and 70 to 75% R.H. An average of 70 eggs was laid per female. Maximum daily egg laying was observed on the first day of oviposition. Incubation for the eggs was 4-5 days. The combined larval and pupal period averaged 20 days. Both the sexes occurred in almost equal numbers.
