Bean Weevils

Recommended Posts

gibbo156    115

I've got a couple of bean weevil cultures that are producing more than i can handle.

I don't want to post them because i don't have any heat packs and i don't think they will survive the cold.

SO

If anybody wants to swap something for them then we could arrange a half way meet somewhere.

I've always got room for more springtails and woodlice but i am happy to consider whatever you have on offer.

 

My post code is OX15 5HP

I wonder if you are into motorcycles in any way? I ask this as I am considering buying a bike from a dealer in OX15RP postcode and wondered if that is anywhere near yourself?

OX1 5RP is about an hour away. Easy enough to get to.

I haven't had a bike for about 37 years ! I am probably too old and scared nowadays.

They took a long time to produce more than just a few.

I had a word with a bloke that was selling them at the CREAKS do at Kidderminster.

He told me that they need more heat.

So i put the cultures on top of the aquarium light unit where it is always hot.

They are producing a LOT now.

I find that bean weevils like the temps in the high 20's. But be careful as once the temp gets towards 30 degrees they start to fly.

I just found that out!

But the one or two that are flying around the viv are giving the greedy tincs some exercise.

Gibbo just be careful. I did not realise several bean weevils had flew onto my clothing then flew off again when i went inside the house.Luckily my wife thinks none of my frog food can fly and thought they were wild beetles that had latched onto me when i was outside. i do grow fruit and veg in the back garden and have wondered if the bean weevils could attack my beans in the garden if they escaped on a warms summers day?

Cheers Gordon, i'll watch for that next summer.

 

In the meantime, this particular glut of bean weevils had been sorted out and i will be delivering them tomorrow.

 

Can the moderators lock this thread please.

 

cheers

gibbo
