SILKWORMS Bombyx mori. FIFTEEN Established  larvae third stage or larger. 

Established Silkworms Bombyx mori available for the first time for years! These will spin their cocoons within 2-3 weeks and emerge as moths after a similar period if kept at room temperature. These are sent feeding on artificial diet and if you wish to keep them like this, you can order a packet of powdered artificial diet that is used with water and heated in a microwave oven to produce a green cake on which the larvae live and feed. Please follow the instructions at the head of this section on Silkworm Eggs and Silkworms.

If you have access to a Mulberry tree, the silkworms can be reared on Mulberry leaves. Mulberry trees are sometimes found in the grounds of large country houses and old parsonage houses. You can buy Mulberry trees from a nursery and any Morus species can be used, but the silkworms eat a lot, so you will need to grow a tree on for some years before the leaves can be used. This is why the artificial diet is so useful!

Now anyone can rear Silkworms even if you don't have a Mulberry tree or live somewhere that has no access to trees for foodplant.

Keeping silkworms is very easy as long as some procedure is observed. They do not need a cage – just a tray, kept in a warm place (about 25 degrees C).
