Dave,
How long is a little while, are you spraying to heavily? Or perhaps you do not have enough ventilation (which you should I keep my guys in racks and do not have a problem)? What are you using as a substrate? If you are using some sort of soil it could be retaining too much water. You should just spray lightly for a few brief seconds, just kind of to coat everything lightly. It should be able to dry completely within 20 minuets or so. However if your guys are shedding fine or you do not see any sort of crust on their lips (their version of a dry mouth, although not always) the spraying is not needed. Just leave it as is and give them a humid hide box to retreat to if they need it (my guys never have, except for eggs). They will also readily drink from standing water. My guys are like clock work, every night before they go to their bowls for food they get a drink of water. Anyway any more qs just ask =).
-Mike
