Rearing silkworm is traditional and an important sub-branch of agriculture, which has 1500-years old history in Anatolia and is usually done on a small scale and does not require much investment (Taskaya, 2011).
In Mediterranean countries summer temperatures are quite high and unsuitable for silkworm rearing Therefore, in Turkey, silkworms are reared twice a year, one of which is spring rearing (April, May and June) and the other is autumn rearing (August and September).
Humidity plays a vital role in silkworm rearing and its role is both direct and indirect.
Since silkworms cannot adjust their body temperature according to surrounding temperature, the rearing room needs to be heated during the first days of feeding using the stove or electric heaters (Gulseren and Sipahioglu, 1992).
The aim of this study was therefore, to calculate the amount of the heat needed by the silkworm during the three different rearing periods, and to determine optimum economical rearing period.
