The Mexican bean beetle, Epilachna varivestis Mulsant, a relative of the ladybug, is an above-ground chewing pest which feeds on legumes (common green beans, shell beans, lima beans and soybeans) and is one of only two destructive North American species in the otherwise beneficial and economically important ladybird beetle family, which.

Mexican bean beetles target plants in the legume family, such as lima beans, snap beans, cowpeas, and soybeans. Both mature beetles and their larvae cause plant damage by feeding on leaves, flowers, stems and bean pods.

Several generations can occur in a season. Identification: Oval-shaped adult Mexican bean beetles are easy to see and identify. The larva of the Mexican bean beetle is a fat grub 5/16 in long, yellowish orange in colour with long spines.

The eggs of the Mexican bean beetle are small yellow ovals that are laid on the bottom of leaves. Mexican Bean Beetle Life Cycle. The adult Mexican bean beetles overwinter in the leaf litter and other debris left in gardens and nearby.

Usually damage is to the leaves only, but in some cases, Mexican bean beetle damage can result in lower crop yield, or even the demise of plants. Occasionally, larvae will feed on young bean pods. Bean leaf, showing work of the Mexican bean beetle silicate, were effective in killing the beetles, but were injurious to the bean foliage.

The ingredients from this tree approximate the shape and structure of hormones vital to the lives of insects (not to mention some other invertebrates and even some microbes). The bodies of these insects absorb the neem compounds as if they were the real hormones.

Adults appear in less than two weeks to begin the cycle again. The time span from egg to adult beetle is about one month and multiple generations occur annually in Virginia. Thresholds. If populations on beans are an average of 1/2 a Mexican bean beetle per plant or if there is more than one egg cluster per row foot, treatment is warranted.
