Do Worms Like soapy dead Blister beetles and dung beetles?

I have been fighting an infestation of blister beetles. Been hand picking them off the plants and throwing them in a bucket of soapy water. Now the dung beetles have invaded the bucket, feasting on the dead blister beetles. I am wondering if the worms would enjoy the contents of the bucket or should I just go pour the contents on the ground somewhere?

Do you mean a worm bin? I don't think they would like the soap. I do pour soapy water (dish and mop water) on the yard or the compost with no ill effects.

Yes, we have a worm bin.
