ABSTRACT INTRODUCTION Tasar silkworm Antheraea mylitta Drury (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae) is a polyphagous sericigenous insect of tropical India. Sampling was done at 10 sites located in six districts of Maharashtra during the year 2016-2017. Tasar silkworm Antheraea mylitta D is a polyphagous insect which are reared outdoors. the incidence and economic damage to silkworms by Uzi fly much higher in western Maharashtra than Marathwada and Vidarbha. Cocoons were formed within 45 days. Sinha's 19 research works with 87 citations and 2,285 reads, including: Indoor chawki rearing technology for Tasar Silkworm Antheraea mylitta D. Regression analysis predicted the richness of wild silk moths was depends on host plant richness. Performance on Ber was higher than Sal and other secondary foodplants, a situation not heretofore documented. After the commercial crop rearing, it undergoes pupal diapause to avoid unfavourable environmental conditions. This is the first study on A. mylitta in Uttarakhand. It is located 17 KM towards South from District head quarters Ambikapur. In India the silk are produced commercially through the cultivation of all five silk varieties viz., mulberry, tropical tasar, temperate tasar, muga and eri silkworms. On the basis of this study it may be concluded that the larvae fed with Q. semecarpifolia at higher altitudes shows better growth and development as compared with other food plants, despite prolonged larval duration. of Sericulture ,T. ... Tasar silk moths and rearing techniques for other wild silkworms have been attempted by several workers (Hampson, 1892; Watson 1911; Lefroy & Ghosh, 1912; Pottar, 1941; Jolly, 1972; Jully et al. Cocoons were formed within 35-43 days. Principal component analysis (PCA) revealed the population structure of Radhanagari and Amba sites was with high diversity of moths in Kolhapur district. Antheraea mylitta Drury are collected from their host (ERR), cocoon weight and silk content in addition to the plants by tribes of Bastar (Chhattisgarh) and rearing environment of crop seasons [1]. vanya silk vis-vis forestry with relevance to North The results showed that Xanthopimpla pedator parasitized pupae of all ages, and the rate of parasitism was high for 4 to 6 days-old pupae especially during second crop rearing. 2013; (4):255-260. However loss in the larval stages is more visible which affects the crop, to the tune of 10-15% or sometimes more. Asan (Terminalia alataW. 1.
