If you are reading this website, chances are, silkworms are not your first pet.
Back in Taiwan, every student had silkworms. It was part of our upbringing and school curriculum. I started keeping them in 2nd grade. It wasn’t without many heartbreaking trials to get them to breed AND to hatch successfully. By 4th grade, I carried a shoebox with me wherever I went. In it, were hundreds of white, smooth and velvety silk caterpillars. Soon after, I immigrated over to the US with my family, and started rearing all sorts of other animals. All of the allowance money I had went to the pet stores.
While I was attending High School, my grandmother flew over to visit us. She had a huge surprise for me: A shoebox! Inside it had 8 silkworms! But it was in the middle of February, the coldest month in the year, with no signs of life on the barren trees. There was nothing I could find for the silkworms to eat. They met their destined fate in a week...
After college, America went online. Suddenly silkworms were being sold from California. And now here I am once again, raising silkworms while caring for my two toddlers at home. As part of the process of isolating some of the desired traits, I began mass producing them. Although silkworms are part of a completely different appreciation, I hope to enhance the silkworm rearing experience for the herpetilians AND to win over the hearts of all of America's children one day.
