    I picked up some wax worms and after fishing all day I still have about half of them (about 50) my question is this: How do you STORE wax worms?

    exactly where i keep mine... if the wife doesn't like it, you can sit them in the basement in a corner on the cool concrete floor as well:wink: goodluck, rollo

    Thanks, I figured I could keep them in the refrigerator. But for how long will they keep?

    they should keep for as long as you can keep them chilled. i have had 2 tubs of nightcrawlers that i have been using on and off for 2 months now, and every time i take them fishing they are still really lively. as long as you keep them cool they should keep for quite a long while.

    Hey best way to store wax worm is keep them refigerated, they stay alive alot longer in a refrigerator, and there still alive and moving when you use them again.

    60 Days is as long as I have kept Waxies alive. When they turn dark I dig them out. I dont know if one dies, and you leave it in the tub it effects the others, but I pitch it out. Worms for a very long time. I know you have to get rid of the dead ones or the crawlers dont last long.
