Vicia faba is an important food resource for human and livestock, and China is the largest producer around the world. Bruchus rufimanus Boheman is the most important pest of V. faba, with infestation rates of 3%-100%, which causes significant economic losses. Semiochemical is a kind of chemical substance released by creature which causes behavior modification or physiological reaction of other biological organisms. It is vital in insect feeding, seeking mate, orienting host and laying eggs. Here, we present a comprehensive review of B. rufimanus from distribution, morphological feature, life cycle, developmental strategy and chemical ecology based on published domestic and foreign research. Emphasis is placed on semiochemical application prospect in integrated pest management, which provides a new perspective to green prevention and control technology of B. rufimanus.
