Pupa Problems! Help!

Recommended Posts

There appears to still be enough of the original pupal cell to allow for proper molting to the pupal stage, and later, eclosion.  Just carefully take the pre-pupa out, lightly brush any loose substrate out of the cell (being careful not to damage it any further) and then place the pre-pupa back in, in its original orientation (with the head-end facing the same direction as it naturally was).  Leave the cell open, without any covering, but place the entire cell and some surrounding substrate into a plastic box with minimal ventilation - just enough to allow for some passage of air, but not enough to allow the substrate to dry out.
