Transcript of Mexican Jumping Beans

Mexican Jumping Bean
5-9 Mexican Jumping Beans start out in a stage called the larva stage. The eggs are laid onto flower capsules and finally hatch. The larva then eats its way into the flowers capsule as food. Life Cycle Life Cycle The larva inside of the bean eats as much of the bean as they can. This is the only food they can eat until they reach adulthood. After the larva eats all of the bean, they form a web inside so they are able to latch onto the beans walls. They begin to transform into an adult month. This is called the pupa stage. After the pupa stage, the moth is ready to emerge and become an adult. The hole that the larva got into the bean through is now the exit for the moth. From this point, the whole life cycle will start again. Life Cycle Mortality The Jumping Bean Moth lays its eggs on the flowers of the poisonous shrub Sebastiana pavoniana and a few other plants Reproduction Traits The jumping bean larva feed on the seeds that they emerge into. When they reach their adult stage, the moths don't eat. Their one and only time to eat was during their larva stage inside of the seed pod.
