pupa care

Asked April 14, 2015, 9:13 PM EDT

I have 16 pupa, that I hand raised. They pupated last fall and I am currently waiting for the final stage. I left their container out in the rain, which was drenched. I carefully dug them out and now I am not sure what to do with them. The container is still to wet. They are Imperials. I apologize for not stating that earlier. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I suggest putting them in a container with peat moss and spray the moss lightly with water so the pupae do not dry out.
