Scientific name: Lasioderma Serricorne.
Of oval shape, this small insect is a beetle. It is hardly 3 mm and is endowed with a body tinged with brown and red. Its elytrons present a smooth texture and its antennas are pinked.
The temperature is the determining factor for the development of the tobacco beetles. In temperatures lower than 15 ° C (especially in winter) larvas slow down clearly their activity and then resume their normal development when the temperatures become again more clement.
The life expectancy of the adult beetles does not exceed 6 weeks and depends essentially on the temperature of the environment in which they evolve.
