The bean seed beetle in faba bean


Bruchus rufimanus (Boheman), commonly referred to as the bruchid beetle or bean seed beetle, is an economically important pest of faba bean throughout Europe, Asia, North America and Africa. Its principal hosts are spring- and autumn-sown faba bean, (Vicia faba var. minor) although, more recently, high levels of infestation have been recorded in broad beans (Vicia faba var. major). The larvae of the beetle cause significant economic losses inside forming seeds. There has been extensive research on the biology and chemical ecology of B. rufimanus, but reliable control options are limited.
