What are the differences between these eggs?
SOUTH AFRICAN DIAPAUSED eggs 2017 OUT OF STOCK. They are fully treated for refrigeration only at arrival at your place. Buy them in bulk and place them in the fridge crisper in a ziploc bag (make sure it is not torn to prevent dessication) Remove them after 50-60 days and incubate. Always check on humidity when incubating and try to keep at 75% RH. Hatch rate decreases the longer it is left in the fridge. This is the most economical way of buying silkworms in bulk, without having to pay express shipping or ice-pack.
Tips on hatching: Silkworms will hatch at 65 degree room temp but will take longer. DIY incubators are easy to make: simply use a large tupperware, place wet sponge or glass of water in it, next to your silkworm eggs, and a lamp over the container, closed to preserve humidity. You can do the same with the hatching cup. But be sure the lamp is not too close to the cup as to over heat it. Eggs will hatch in the spring in their due time when the temperature reaches low 70's without artificial conditioning as they are naturally spring insects.
These eggs may come loose, glued down, laid on paper, or in pouches..
