dc.descriptionWhen the larvae begin to crawl they are teased apart and fed with shredded mulberry leaves. After seven days they turn yellow and fall asleep. This is called the first sleep. On waking they shed their skin and once again are fed for seven days at the end of which period they once more fall asleep. This is the 'second sleep'.
