Cowpea weevil, Callosobruchus maculatus (F.)

The cowpea weevil is a pest of field peas growing in fields as well as dry seed in storage. The adult is 1/8 to 1/5 inch long; is dark colored and has four pale brown spots on the wing covers. Like the pea weevil, the damage is caused by the grub-like larva. Reproduction may be continuous in peas stored under warm temperatures. There are several generations annually.
