    Protecting beans from bugs

    A few years ago I learned that the most dangerous pest of beans - the weevil beetle - gets into the pods at the site and immediately begins to multiply. If there is at least one infected bean in the bag, the crop is lost. Therefore, I have in store several tricks against the pest.

    I dry the beans that were husked after harvesting for several days in the sun. I fall asleep in bags, at the bottom of which I put chopped chives or dill seeds, whose smells the pest does not like.
    I store in the cold (on the balcony): the beans are not afraid of frost, and the weevil does not tolerate them. At temperatures from 0 to - 9 degrees, it ceases to multiply, and at - 10 degrees, and below it dies.
    If the cold does not come for a long time, I send the beans to the freezer for three days. Then I store it in the closet or on the balcony in canvas bags. After this temporary freezing, the beans can be used for sowing.
    There is another way to cope with the weevil - to dry the beans in the oven at 130 degrees. 5-7 minutes. However, such beans are no longer suitable for sowing.

    It was not always possible to keep the harvest of beans and peas in the apartment. Often bugs would start in the beans and spoil the supplies. I read that this is a bean weevil that can and should be fought against.
    After harvesting, I took the seeds for sowing, put them in paper bags and from the rules for storage in the refrigerator.

    For the sake of the experiment, the beans for food were divided into two parts: the first 30 minutes of warming up in the oven at + 50 ... + 60 degrees, and the second for a couple of days in the freezer. Then she poured both those and other grains into separate glass jars and put them in a cabinet.
    As a result, both warmed and frozen beans were perfectly preserved, not a single bug was wound up in it.

    Last season, my garden looked like an experimental pavilion. Planted four types of beans, three of them are asparagus.

    The first thing that took the most place was Nevi, with white small grains, rich in vitamins and very fruitful. The second - six bushes of asparagus beans Oil King: these are compact bushes with a plentiful early harvest, with yellow pods up to 25 cm long. This variety easily tolerates a lack of moisture, good for summer residents who travel to the country once a week. Near the net-chain-link I planted asparagus beans Saksu, (from this variety my acquaintance with beans began).
    She grew 40 cm high. Pods 12 cm long appeared early. My main experiment was the planting of Blau Hilde asparagus beans. It is indicated that the variety is early, but in fact was mid-season. Liana grows up to 5 m, there are many pods, they are purple in color, 20-25 cm long, without fibers. After heat treatment turn green.

    All asparagus varieties were pleased with the taste, and a very tasty borsch comes out with Nevi. And then I will sow all these varieties a little bit.

    I noticed small bugs in jars with beans. How to save a crop? Is it possible to sow such beans next year?

      - And I had such a situation. I had to tinker, but I saved the supplies. First of all, I cleaned all kitchen cabinets with soap and wiped them dry. She poured beans into glass jars with screwed lids and put them in the freezer for three days. Then she sifted it through a large sieve, again fell asleep in cans and in each threw a clove of garlic. Kept in the refrigerator. The bugs no longer start.
      In the spring, two weeks before sowing, the beans warmed up on a battery. Germination was envy!

    Process beans at least twice during flowering: it blooms for a long time, bugs fly unevenly. Means for spraying summer residents choose themselves.
