In the past, silkworms in the first stage were raised directly on the nest, every 1 to 2 hours they had to clean up and move the silkworms to another nest. But now switch to silkworm rearing on mesh trays (sliding trays). When cleaning, just lift the tray and the silkworms will stay on the net, the silkworm’s waste will go down, so it’s very clean and fast.

The technique of raising silkworms in the second stage from the age of 3 to the age of 5 is also very simple. In the old technique, previously all silkworms were raised on stilts, now thanks to the technique of raising silkworms by net, from the age of 3 to 4 years old silkworms can be raised on cement but silkworms still develop and grow healthy. Thanks to this farming method, farmers have taken advantage of a lot of space to raise silkworms

On the other hand, in the past, when the silkworms were ripe, they swarmed up to let them make cocoons. The silk termites often overlap each other, so it is difficult to harvest, and the cocoons are not beautiful. After applying the two-stage silkworm rearing technique. People put silkworms on the wooden block to replace the traditional bamboo, the output and quality of silkworm cocoons are improved. Silkworms “silk” evenly and white, silk fibers are longer, the quality of cocoons meets the requirements of industrial silk production. Good quality cocoons also means higher selling prices and improved income.

Mr. Nguyen Van Nghia in Thanh Tri hamlet, Dong Thanh commune, Lam Ha district, Lam Dong raises silkworms in the traditional way, but the cocoon yield is only 30-35kg of cocoons/box of silkworms. After switching to two-stage silkworm rearing, Mr. Nghia’s family raised 7 boxes of silkworm seed for each litter (raising the head pillow) with an average yield of 45-55kg cocoons/box of silkworms. With the current selling price of 195,000 VND/kg cocoons, Mr. Nghia earns 50-60 million VND/month thanks to the two-stage silkworm rearing technique.
