The domesticated silkworm, Bombyx.mori has been the objective of demanding scientific study. The nurture of silkworm is extremely vulnerable to change in environmental conditions especially in larval stages. Fluctuations in the larval stages with reference to light (artificial and sunlight) changed the larval survival duration and also shows its effect on the yields of profitable crops. Keeping this view in context, the present study is designed to find out the consequences of complete darkness, artificial light (for shorter duration) and also early morning sunlight for the same. The present results revealed that mean life cycle of larval stages of Bombyx.mori was 35.5 days in dark, 34 days in artificial light and 32.5 days in sunlight. The mean length and weight of all the larval stages in three different situations strengthened the productiveness of the larvae. Generally the duration of life cycle, length ,weight and fecundity rate of the larvae reared in early morning sunlight was significantly better than the larvae kept in artificial light and in dark condition
