    Several of my worms are turning in pupae and I am transfering them to another container.

    Do I need a source of moisture in the container for them and the beetles?

    I cover mine with a couple layers of newspaper and spritz the paper with water. They will get moisture from the chunks of apple/carrot/potato you put in as well. Just don't get the bedding wet. You don't want mold growth.
