Bamboo worm is white and typically measure 3.5 to 4 cm long. After 45 to 60 days, the larvae mature and then enters a phase of prolonged sleep, lasting 8 months. This long period called diapause is exceptional for a tropical insect. It is probably caused by the particular climate of this region undergoing important amplitudes of temperatures and humidity, which affects the availability of food for the larvae. Therefore this is the period to collect bamboo worms.
