At the moment I have them in small plastic containers (about shoe box size only higher), I put them in a dark room that we don't use often. I still need to do research on cleaning the boxes.

Getting used to the idea of eating them isn't a bad idea if you're a bit of a pepper like I am, especially if you have an abundance of worms. I think I might just look into it too. Then the worms will have many functions: hedgehog treats, chicken snacks, survival food and their poop can be used to fertilize our veggie garden!

Thank you very much for your encouragement!
