I'm getting to many beatles & I heard some people freeze there meal worms for there chickens for the winter months.
How many of you do this? What do you do just throw them into a container & start filling it up?

Just putting them in the fridge will keep them from turning into beetles for quite a while. I'd think freezing them would kill them, but I also don't see what that would hurt either :)

Ya, if you want to slow them down, just keep them in a cooler area, down to about 60%. The cooler they are the slower they will grow. The chickens are perfectly happy to eat the beetles too usually. I never bothered for the chickens, but there is no reason not to freeze them if you want to save them as larva.
