Rated 2 out of 5 by from I have not yet been successful in raising a batch of silkworms using this food. I have been raising silkworms using real mulberry leaves for 15+ years. Twice I have tried using this artificial diet and twice I have killed every single larva. I followed the cooking instructions very carefully and they still have died. I finally called Carolina help line two days ago and was told that the instructions for making small batches (3 tablespoons at a time rather than the whole batch at once) have changed in the past two or three years. I am now told that I should NOT put the food in the refrigerator - just the opposite of what my instruction sheet says to do. I'm going to try it again......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way easier than leaves! I started my silkworms (hatched from eggs) on the Silkworm Chow and they are growing like crazy. I received some worms from a student (probably 2 weeks old) and needed to feed them leaves. Constantly collecting leaves gets old. If you use the chow you must start them on it when they hatch, you can't switch). It is easy to make and store. The only down side is that it is a pungent when you first make it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The silkworms died after giving food. I dont know if there was a direct link, but I could not see the benefits
