Refrigerating CalciWorms

Just sharing this I received in an email from one of my bulk insect providers :

The calciworms we supply are at the prepupation phase so they have no functional mouthparts and therefore don’t feed so just keep them in a moist substrate such as coir peat. They still need to breath so some air holes will be needed in a sealed container.
If you plan to refrigerate them you really need to raise the temperature of the fridge somewhat as they won’t do well at normal fridge temperatures (usually 4-5C), we keep them here at about 10C but even at that temperature I would expect them to last more than a few weeks
