CB and BV rearing should not be done simultaneously. The healthy larvae in the rearing trays were enumerated and unhealthy or dead larvae removed periodically.

During monsoon season the following methods are to be adopted: By adopting fumigation method also mountages can be disinfected. If the animal is allowed to survive after spinning its cocoon and through the pupal phase of its lifecycle, it releases proteolytic enzymes to make a hole in the cocoon so it can emerge as an adult moth.

To rear dfls of CSR hybrids what should be the size of the shoot rearing rack? Black boxing should be made when the eggs show head pigmentation 48hrs before hatching. Non-diapause eggs occur under following conditions: However, the following models are recommended.

Wild silkmoths are different from their domestic cousins as they have not been selectively bred; they are not as commercially viable in the production of silk. Floss can siliworm be removed by using rotary mountages cleaner.


The number of fertilized eggs hatched synchronously in a brood was taken as a measure to calculate the percentage of hatching by using the following formula:.

Yes, cross bivoltune is very much essential during late age rearing. Keeping this in view, an attempt is made to develop silkworm hybrids tolerant to high temperature environments 1.

The silkworm is the larva or caterpillar of the domestic silkmothBombyx mori Latin: Nutritional changes of four varieties of Mulberry leaves at infected with Fungus Cercospora moricola. Good quality mulberry leaves 2. However, the mulberry silk is highly produced and widely used in the country.

Frequent feeding with less feed. In extreme cases when the pebrinised eggs are used for rearing the larval appetite reduces and feeds irregularly which results in unequal larvae.

Cocoons should be transported during the cooler hours. The highest filament length Whether moist leaf can be fed to just out of ma worms? It is not advisable to shift the layings before black boxing.


During moult since rearing bed is kept dry, fermentation of leaves is avoided and also it is possible to change the leaves after moult at farmers place. View at Google Scholar H. In Septemberthe effort was announced as successful. Yes, rotary mountage is available in market with prior order. There are three important factors which determine the quality of leaves, viz.


Better keeping quality of leaf during storing and in the rearing bed. Cocoons harvested from rotary mountages are uniform in shape and size. What is the reason for occurrence of unequal larvae during chawki rearing? The results of current study revealed that spring followed by autumn rearing seasons are suitable for bivoltine silkworm rearing in Uttar Pradesh. During brushing, use a feather or brush.

Eggs are incubated in darkness. Moist leaf can be fed provided good ventilation in the rearing house is available.

Domestic silkmoths are closely dependent on humans for reproduction, as a result of millennia of selective breeding. The growth and cocoon characteristics of silkworms fed on leaves of different mulberry varieties were studied at different seasons. All the larval characters and economic traits of cocoon sil,worm correlated with cocoon yield.

All above methods are having advantages a disadvantages. Separate facility for leaf storage and mounting. Thick layer of eggs during light exposure. View at Google Scholar K.

As she picked it out and started to wrap the silk thread around her finger, she slowly felt a warm sensation.
