You mean having the mealworms, aliens, and beetles all separated from each other? If I remember right, it's best to do that so the mealworms and beetles don't eat the aliens. Plus then you know the beetle container will be the one with eggs/baby mealworms in it, and once the mealworms are big enough that you can find them (I'm not actually sure how small they start out), you can move them to the mealworm container to grow bigger.
