    Silkworm Incubator

    Hi everyone, I've always only ever had one cham at a time so breeding my own bugs didn't really seem worth it. I just put down a deposit on another boy, my first panther boy! My veiled LOVES silks (as he should) and I think with the new guy coming in December, it will be worth it to try...

    Poop or Oreo Cookies?

    Okay experienced feeder breeders, I just received a shipment of 200 large silkworms. There are eight containers with 25 silkworms in each one. In each container there is a lot of brown stuff that looks like Oreo cookie crumbs. Please don't tell me that those cookie crumbs are actually silkworm...

    Coastal Silkworms Ordering

    So i just made my first order from coastal silkworms. I order 500 silkworm eggs and a 1/2 pound of the silkworm food powder.

    Rearing Silkworms on Dandelion

    I was just wondering if anyone has tried rearing silkworms exclusively on dandelion leaves? My mulberry tree is obviously out of commission right now and I don't have the same success / enjoyment rearing silks on chow. The chow oftentimes gets moldy or dried, and old chow is difficult to...

    Cricket Food (silkworms)

    I know it would be expensive and pointless but I was wondering if I could feed crickets mulberry food (the food for silkworms) to get the same wonderful protein filled feeder. Or will crickets still be less nutritious then silkworms? Also, I order a whole bunch of silkworms (babies) and they...

    Silkworm Best Practices (chow)

    I wanted to start this thread in order to get a set of best practices for raising silkworms from eggs with the goal being to minimize die-off and workload. If we could keep the focus on feeding with chow, it would be helpful entering the cold season. Any thoughts on containers and balancing...

    Question about Silkworms

    So I bought a cup of "small" Silkworms online. It got delivered fine, all the worms were alive. 0.5 inches small. I tried to move the silkworms from the cup into another container (see image below). I managed to move almost 70% (approx) of them into without any issues but almost 30% of the worms...

    Silkworm Cup + Mold

    I saw a old topic related to this (from 2007, yikes) but I didn't want to bring that topic "back from the dead". I purchased a "baby" silkworm cup from Mulberry Farms a couple of weeks ago. Everything was going quite well, Cicero was LOVING the small silkworms, and I thought they were just...

    Hi, i've heard afew people say that one a panther chameleon turns 6 months old you can feed them silk worms as a staple instead of crickets, i know that silk worms are lower fat so tell me what you think ;)

    Are all silkworms created equal?

    There seems to be three kinds available: de zebras, de blacks, and de regular silkworms.. Are these worms equally as good as feeders?

    Regs and Zebras... All mixed in now?

    Back when Zebra silkworms were new on the market an order of regular silkworms would get you all white silkies. Same with Zebras. But I have noticed with my last few orders of silkies, where I just ordered regulars, I would also end up with lots of zebras. I haven't ordered Zebras exclusively...

    What happened to all the Silkies???

    Have you tried to find any silkworms lately... Good Luck!!! I need Silkies again, and they are nowhere to be found! Are they going extinct? I know they don't live in the wild... Are the farmed populations dying off as well??? Never really had this prob before.
