Oviposition Preferences of the African Wild Silkmoth, Gonometa postica Walker (Lepidoptera: Lasiocampidae) on Different Substrates
TLDR
The oviposition preferences of female G. postica on four substrates in a net-sleeved cage was studied in the laboratory in the long and short rainy seasons in 2007 to optimise the production of eggs in net sleeved cages in an indoor environment for the semi-captive rearing of the larvae. Expand
Use of Sleeve Nets to Improve Survival of the Boisduval Silkworm, Anaphe panda, in the Kakamega Forest of Western Kenya
TLDR
Prospects for development of a wild silk industry in Africa would be improved if silkworm survival during mass production could be improved, and larval survival was improved over three-fold by protection with net sleeves in both habitat types. Expand
