Make sketches of the two stages in the life history of the silk moth which are directly related to the production of silk.
Two stages in the life cycle of a moth directly related to silk production are:
- Formation of the cocoon by the Pupa - the cocoon is made of silk and is used as the primary source of silk fibres which are processed and made into yarns and clothes.
- Laying of eggs by Adult Female moth - The eggs hatch to form larvae and silkworms which grow into the pupa . The pupa is the final source of silk. The process would be impossible without new eggs hatching with every cycle.
