The biology of groundnut seed beetle (bruchid) was studied under laboratory conditions. The mean duration of pre-oviposition, oviposition, incubation, grub, pre-pupal, female and male adult bruchids were recorded. The duration of total life cycle of Caryedon serratus (Olivier) from egg laying to adult emergence was found to be 46 days.
