Two questions:

Betaboy seems to have wandered off the subject somewhere between the title and his first word! However, there are some really neat facts about silk.

Georgia was founded to produce silk and wine. As a matter of fact, the original settlers were required to plant 100 white mulberry trees for every 10 acres cleared! Unfortunately they were the wrong type of mulberry trees and the silk worms did not really like them.

The county seat of Cherokee county Georgia (named after the indians that were removed to create the county after gold was discovered there) is Canton, named in honor of the Chinese city.

The silkworm is the caterpillar of the moth Bombyx mori. It is a completely domesticated insect. There are no wild silkworms and silkworms can't live without human care.

The silkworm caterpillar grows to about three inches long on a diet of nothing but white m
