Large Silkworms - Approx. 1 1/2" long We ship your BeastMode silkworms with enough food to last 2 days. If you plan on growing out your silkworms past 2 days, please order more food. If you receive dead silkworms you must let us know within 24 hours upon receiving your silkworms (after 24 hours, we will not replace dead silkworms).
If receiving silkworms with chow:
Upon arrival, gently pull mesh out of the shipping container and place mesh, on its side, in the bottom of a storage container. Transfer all the silkworms and food to the new container. This allows the silkworms to breathe, as they like to crawl under the mesh during shipping and may suffocate if the mesh is not removed...
If receiving silkworms with mulberry leaves:
Upon arrival, gently remove silkworms from the container with three leaves. Place into a larger container with no lid (silkworms will stay on leaves and not crawl out). Place remaining leaves in a ziplock bag, press out all air, seal, and put in the refrigerator. Pull out one or two leaves at a time and feed to silkworms. Repeat as the silkworms consume most of the leaves in their container.
Food or leaves that are shipped with the silkworms will last 2 days. If not feeding silkworms to your reptile within 2 days, please order more food or feed Mulberry leaves.
After transferring and/or feeding your silkworms, place the lid back on the storage container (this keeps the food from drying out so quickly). Remember to air out the container every day for about a half-hour.
Do not refrigerate your silkworms – they are not like hornworms and will die if too cold
Keep silkworms out of direct sunlight and maintain them at room temperature
If you run out of food, you may shred carrot and feed to your silkworms. The silkworms might turn to an orange color, but they are still very nutritious.
