Our Silkworms are always shipped small or medium so that you can grow them to the size that you prefer. Large Silkworms do not ship well and will consume a large amount of food in transit thus, cutting back on the time you have to feed them off. Also, large Silkworms create a lot of feces which builds up during shipping and will kill the worms. Silkworms grow extremely fast so don't worry if they are small on arrival. Keep your Silkworms at room temperatures for average growth, or to speed up their growth place them in warmer temperatures.
