How to use "Bruchidae" in context?
Bruchidae is a family of soft-bodied, parasitic insects that feed mainly on other insects. Adult bruchid flies are small and black, while the larvae are brightly coloured and hairy. Many bruchid species are parasites of other insects, but some, such as the clothes moth, are pests of materials such as wool and cotton.
