Well I really don't . See, I have a mesh under my Beatle drawer and they drop the eggs to the bottom one I wait for about 2 weeks and the I replace the bottom drawer for a new clean one and don't touch the other one for about another 2 weeks (just keep an eye don't let mold) but when I switch bottom drawer I clean the beetle drawer I might loose some eggs but definitely not as much ... If you have just one bin for everything I would probably strain he beetles out into a new one every month or so just watch the water source not to mold your oats or place them on a small plate.
Hope this was of help
