    Abstract :

    Silk is the beautiful gift of nature which has great commercial importance. Production of silk is directly dependent on eggs of silk insects .Laying of eggs by silk insects depends upon so many factors. So, the relative impacts of extrinsic factors namely different temperature, photoperiod and humidity on the egg laying of three different non-mulberry silk moths (tasar, eri and muga) have been evaluated in this project. Result will help our poor people in the production of more silk. This project had been taken in consideration especially to enhance the growth of silk industry.
