they are lol. For a size comparison those holes drilled in the size are smaller than ants. The smallest a drill my dad has can handle

I may use some for feeders to tiny web weaving spiders like my argiopes when they hatch. They are also useful for feeding poison dart frogs and other small animals :)

Wow! That's a lot!

Make sure none of them escape cause these are serious pests to beans.

Lol they keep coming out of the beans! I keep taking them out about a dozen at a time or more and they just keep coming lol.

 

I am being very careful to make sure none escape. I am aware of how these are pests, but good thing we don't keep beans ;):P

Don't worry I won't throw the beans out until they stop coming ;)

 

I think a lot of the ones still coming up were already beetles when I got them, as there were a lot of them still alive when I got them :)

 

I have caught some laying eggs I think, they walk around a bean checking it out then they "sit" on it and move to another spot and do it over again :)
