Primordial black holes (PBHs) of microscopical size can completely absorb neutron stars (NSs) and white dwarfs (WDs) for less than the Hubble time. NS absorption is accompanied by inverse URCA process giving rise to emission of antineutrino. However considerable part of these antineutrino fails to escape NS being drawn into the growing black hole by accreting NS matter. The final stage of dense WD absorption is accompanied by 1051erg neutrino burst able to ignite nuclear burning giving rise to supernova-like WD explosion.
