the main advantages to keeping mealies in a fridge is it slows them down ~ they don't 'go off' or pupate as quick ~ and they last longer which is more cost efficient especially if you only use a few at a time or buy in bulk

If you don't like the idea of keeping them in your main fridge it might be worth considering buying one of those dinky fridges ~ I use a small table-top fridge which is kept in my rep-room
