I'm trying to figure out a way to keep bee moth's longer than I can now.

Here is what I do currently.

I keep them in a large container in the basement with plenty of fresh bedding. I add corn meal to the mixture for a food source. I make sure to pick any dead ones out every few days.

Any other tricks or suggestions? Should I be watering them somehow.

What works?

Jimmy,
I don't think you should be watering them.
I have a basement fridge that I keep them in. They stay dormant a long time.
If you don't have a fridge you could freeze some waterr bottles and keep them in a cooler. Switch the bottles as needed. I also add just a touch of corn meal and a touch of garlic powder If I am going to store some for a while.
