Hello and thank you in advance for helping me :)

I need to refrigerate some of my mealies and I have a few questions:

1) Can I put a lid on the container?
1a) Should I punch holes in it?

2) Do I put substrate in the container? (I have read conflicting information about this)

3) How often do I need to take them out of the fridge?
3a) Do I feed them at this time?
3b) How long do they stay out?

4) How long can they live like this?

Generally, when I buy them from te store they come in a comtainer that already has holes poked in it. They are usually in an Oatmeal substrate. They basically go into hibernation in the refridgerator, though if you leave them too long they will start to die. I usually only buy a 1-2 month supply at a time. If you leave them out for a while...I rarely do, but last time it was about 24 hours and some of them started turning into aliens.
Hope that helps.
