Abstract: We know that the silkworms consume leaves in large quantities. The scope of the research was observing their reaction to various additives for their food. In this experiment, we administered mulberry leaves spray-coated with olive oil (0.66% of food mass) and filter paper soaked in olive oil placed between leaves. The research was performed on four different silkworm hybrid strands. Each hybrid was separated in 3 lots. The preliminary conclusions of the research were that the olive oil is detrimental to the development of larvae, regardless of the method of administration.
