Preparing For The Pupa Stage

12 Sep

My silkworms are now over 2 inches long and almost ready to make their cocoons.


In light of their impending change we have set up our tank with numerous  tubes in which they’ll supposedly make their silk cocoon.


Although I counted each silkworm today and there are 85 of them so I don’t have enough tubes to accommodate them all.

Back to cutting tubes for me.

    Hope the little guys appreciate your effort. Don’t be surprised if they make their cocoons on top of each other, in the gaps between rolls and around the walls.
