Order Description

three questions (no more than 150 words each) regarding a reading titled: Fireflies, honey, and silk by Gilbert Waldbauer. I do not have an online version of the book but I contacted customer service in the website and they told me they can provide it for the writer. If you don’t have access to it then please cancel the order and issue a refund for me. The questions are from chapter 2,3, and 4 from the book. These are the questions:

Chapter 2: Silk Describe some of the insects that produce silk. Indicate how they use it and what functions it performs. Describe how the silk moth (Bombyx mori) is cultivated in China for silk production. What is the hosplant of Bombyx mori? Why didn’t a North American silk industry develop?

Chapter 3: Cochineal (Dactylopius coccus) Describe how cochineal dye is produced. What is the organism that produces it? What is the preferred host-plant? How did the Aztecs cultivate it? Why was it so valuable to European explorers?

Chapter 4: Jewelry Describe some of the ways that insects and insect products have been used to make jewelry. What, in your opinion, makes insect products so attractive for human ornamentation?
