Products > SILKWORMS > Silkworm Eggs

Silkworm Eggs ordered in lots of 200, 500 and 1000 now come loose in a small petri dish with a large petri dish included for hatching. (We are no longer shipping eggs glued down as weather can cause the glue to lose its adhesive quality and the eggs end up coming loose.)  When you receive your eggs place them in the center of the large petri dish for hatching. (If static electricity causes eggs to stick to the small petri dish rub the bottom of the petri dish with a dryer sheet to disperse the static electricity/release the eggs.) Silkworm Chow is sold separately. When the silkworm eggs hatch (within a week to ten days) prepare the silkworm chow and feed (see our Care & Raising Tips-FAQ page for more detailed instructions). To obtain the maximum number of live silkworms from the eggs, we recommend that there be no more than 1000 eggs per large petri dish (ideally 200 to 500 eggs per large petri dish is best), otherwise you may end up with a lower percentage of silkworms because of overcrowding.

If you order eggs in BULK (2,000 to 25,000 counts), they will all arrive loose in 1 petri dish.  No additional petri dishes for hatching are included with bulk egg counts; therefore, if you purchase eggs in bulk we recommend that you purchase additional large petri dishes along with egg scoops (if you do not already have them) and place the eggs into the petri dishes for hatching.

NOTE: Newly hatched silkworms must be consistently maintained at warm temperatures (at least 78 degrees) (and not allowed to become too dry) or they will not grow and will usually die. We recommend incubators (see our Care & Raising Tips for more details on incubators and keeping them warm without one). Once the silkworms reach about 3/4 inch long (after about 10 to 12 days from the time they hatched) they are past the critical stage and can be rasied at lower temperatures but they should be kept warm thru all stages to grow quickly and remain healthy.
