Type of beans in a bean weevil culture

Recommended Posts

I bought a bean weevil culture from Dartfrog.co.uk earlier in the year and struggled to find some black eyed beans in the local shops so bought some haricot beans instead (small white ones . We also had some soup bean mixture so I thought I'd give that a try too as it was a mix of quite a few different types. To cut a long story short these two new cultures produced absolutely nothing, whilst the original culture with a 1 cm layer of haricot beans put on top of the old black eyed beans produced a few more adults a couple of weeks later. I've now found a place that does sell black eyed beans and each of these new cultures is producing on a regular basis. So, moral of the story - use only black eyed beans with your bean weevil cultures!!!
