This video shows silkworms that have spun their cocoons on our exclusive cocoonery. You will not find this item anywhere else. Some moths have emerged and are mating, which is the purpose of their entire lives.

Toilet paper tubes and egg cartons are ineffective for this purpose because there is no place for fluids to evaporate and discharge. The fluids build up, causing bacteria and soggy conditions. The Pupae eventually die.

Our cocoonery is made of open mesh and is lifted off the ground, which provides maximum airflow. Fluids and moisture evaporate and dissipate, leaving the pupae high and dry, ready to emerge as moths later.
