We only send on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday to ensure they are not in transit over the weekend. Live Silkworms are not available for sale to WA and Tasmania.
Silkworms have a life cycle of 55-60 days. Your silkworms will soon spin a silken cocoon. The cocoon will then hatch into a moth and lay eggs. Silkworms should be kept at an even temperature, preferably around 23 celsius but a bit cooler is OK.
Silkworms are also a great food source. Volume for volume, silkworms are more nutricious than either mealworms or crickets. They are a very soft bodied "worm" and add variety to the diets of many insect eaters.
