Using silkworm chow in place of fresh mulberry leaves allows for continued yearlong growth, extending growing seasons when no mulberry leaves are available in the winter. Its recommended to only feed silkworm chow and not mix with fresh mulberry leaves, or your silkworms may refuse going back on the chow. After following the cooking instructions below, the food will be ready to feed. Using a food grater, follow the feeding instructions for your intended use. This diet will feed both silkworms (bombyx mori) and hornworms (manduca sexta). Using this product will require a scale to weigh out the proper amount of powdered food. As an estimate, 3 cups of powdered food is equal to 1 pound when a scale is not available. For more details see www.coastalsilkworms.com or scan the QR code on the bag.
