We ordered this kit as part of our homeschool study unit on the silk road, raising these little guys has been a wonderful learning experience, and we are enjoying watching the worms grow - hopefully we will be able to process some of our own home grown silk. The kit is ideal for first timers like us, the instructions are clear and all of the worms ( there were so many!) were very healthy - they have a dedicated appetite, and are growing quickly! The mulberry mulch in piping bags is very convenient too! If I was to make one suggestion - it would be to include two pieces of mesh, so each day you can place a fresh one on top with food, let them crawl through, and then more easily change the bottom one of dried food/frass ( this would make it easier to not have to move the worms as much) Overall we are delighted with our silkworms, and will recomend you to other homeschooling friends! Thank you!
I couldn’t fault a thing with the kit, everything needed to get started.
