Bruchas rufimanus Similar to the Pea Weevil Bruchas pisorum
. . . reproduces in spring in bean crops, lays eggs on the young pods, develops in the growing seeds and overwinters as adults in shelters, or in diapause as larva or pupa diapause in the stored seeds. . . . The adult weevils feed on pollen, while their larvae tunnel in seeds destroying crops and moving on to new ones once they dry out. The adult beetle, being one of the biggest of its genus, ranges from 3 to 5 mm in length.
This has come about partly from looking into building a cabin type workshop. The idea was to insulate the cabin from the ground by resting it on stones rather than have a concrete foundation.
This inevitably lead to a design that meant having pieces of wood to act as beams to support a floor. If the cabin was to used in all weathers then the floor could be insulated which led to the idea of an enclosed platform some 8" thick on top of main beams of 8", which in turn shall be at least 12" from the ground. See cabinsub_floordesign
So although not now a part of the grandiose idea of a cabin I am about to embark upon building the platform much inline with the design of the cabin support, but with the insulation yet having top flooring.
The problem I still have is getting three 7.2m 'beams' to the land but I will go and build two pillars as an incentive.
So jobs are:
Builds two pillars | from stone already from the land | held together by mortar | Mortar: 3 sand | 1 OPC : 0.5 Hydrated lime
