2-3 times a day, small meals work best. offer as much as they will eat. i would guess 5 crickets at least. or 3 super worms or more! (dont ever feed meal worms they are useless)
mulberryfarm.com has good prices on silk worms. you can see they are pricey, and right now it is to hot to ship them. often they arrive in a massive gooie mess if its to hot. they die with humidity and heat. and they are shipped with food so.. yuck!

you can try your luck with mulberry, expecialy since they garentee live delivery.

i keep mine in a clean plastic shallow long bin lined with small animal cage liner or paper towel. i orderd large petri dishes from mullberry and i put the mullberry food into the dishes. each worm must have its spot on the food or dehydration will set in and kill your worm because it wont eat well.
they are easy to bruse, that will kill it.
they are easy to get sick with bacteria. wash your hands
they die with moisture, dont close container with worms. large open area works best and few stray if food is avalable.

i use chopsticks to pull out silk worms that i wish to feed, that way i dont have to wash my hands 20 times. never return an uneaten silk worm back into the bin.

silk worms can be a staple food, but i noticed runny poo like i said before. silk worms contain enzimes, one of which helps with the absorbing of calcium!!
