Black eyed peas, or cowpeas are a bean that is popular in the Southern US, Africa, and Asia. They tolerate heat, drought and humidity much better than common beans do which make them the ideal environment for Bean Beetles. Adults do not require any food or water, they only require cowpeas on which to lay their eggs. They live for 10-14 days and each female will lay a single egg on each bean. The larvae will burrow into the bean where they will feed, pupate, and eventually emerge as adult beetles.
