Not directly but if you keep the temps less than ideal they tend to breed more slowly from what I've seen. Cellar temps in the 55-65f range should slow them down quite a bit.

Where would be a good place to store them, I know not the garage because the heat index where I'm at was 110 today.

Yep, a dark, cool area should do the trick.

Ok thanks, my parents are starting to consider me buying dubias for blitz, so I'm just making sure I do my research on how to care for them.

Why do you not want them to breed? It would save you and your parents a ton of money if you kept them in a manner that allowed them to breed. That way you could stop buying them. They wont get out and breed in the house if that's a concern.
