How sericulture effects the environment?

Disinfection is an integral part of healthy and successful silkworm rearing. It aims at the total destruction of disease causing pathogens.

They are not easily destroyed and can persist / survive for long periods under congenial conditions. The spores of the pathogens, especially those of fungi are light and can easily be drifted by air current resulting in easy spread of diseases.
