Advice on my artificial pupal cells

Recommended Posts

I had to remove two of my M. punctulatus pupae from their containers -- one had mites and the other one had mold working its way into the cell. I removed the mites and the mold doesn't seem to have harmed the pupa, but this is the first time I've had to remove pupae from their cells so I'd love some input on whether I'm doing this right.


The floral foam I got doesn't seem to hold moisture at all, so I'm not sure if I did something wrong there or if I just got crappy foam. :/ I surrounded the dry foam with moist coco fiber to keep some humidity in the container but I'm not sure if that's going to keep the pupae from drying out. On the other hand, I don't want to try to moisten the foam and have them get wet, which I can't imagine is good either.


Any input would be much appreciated! Thanks!
