The silkworm is the larva or caterpillar of the domesticated silkmoth, Bombyx mori
( Latin : “ silkworm of the mulberry tree ”). It is an economically important insect being a primary producer of silk. A silkworm’s preferred food is white mulberry leaves, but it may also eat the leaves of any other mulberry tree as well as the Osage Orange.
