Do Nightcrawlers die if frozen?

No they cannot, unless they all bunched together and a few didn’t freeze.. that’s your only hope. If they look deflated, toss them! I wouldn’t even thaw them out, that’s going to be a stinky mess. If they froze, place them in a very warm place- like the trunk of your car, and give them 7-10 days to thaw.

What do you feed earthworms to keep them alive?

The worms will feed on kitchen scraps. However, do not give them anything oily, any dairy products, nor any meat. These foods will make the bin rancid and attract vermin. Also, acidic foods such as tomatoes, citrus, and pineapple should be avoided.

Can maggots live in the fridge?

Maggots usually begin to die when the temperature drops below 50 degrees Fahrenheit, and usually die within a few hours. In a refrigerator, maggots often won’t survive more than 12 hours or so, because the temperature of a refrigerator is generally kept to 40 or 30 degrees or less.

How long can maggots live in the fridge?

The perfect place to keep maggots is in a fridge. Here they will remain happy for up to a fortnight (if you have bought them fresh). The cold slows their metabolism down enough to prevent them from changing into casters. Always keep the lid on though, to prevent any damp maggots from escaping inside the fridge.
