He has started taking dd fishing, he says the bait need to be refrigerated. I have told him to look out for a cheap second hand fridge or on freecycle so they can be kept in the garage,

Where to other men keep their maggots? grin

He seemed so surprised when I said no, apparently everyone he knows who fishes keeps their maggots in the fridge!! I was shock too.

My Dad always kept his maggots in the fridge.

In a tightly sealed container (I think)

No container would be tightly sealed enough for me ;)

my sister once babysat for a couple and in the evening she went to get some cake from the fridge (as she had been invited to do) opened a tupperware box...and a million of the tiny feckers exploded in her face. She screamed the fecking house down obviously.

YANBU - I make DH keep his in a small beer fridge in the garage!

Maybe I am unreasonable but maggots are my ultimate Bete-noire. Some people are terrified of spiders or mice; for me, its maggots sad

My wheely bin had maggots last summer - they empty once a fortnight here and I missed bin day - I had to clean it out and cried and gagged alternately.

A mini fridge is deffo the way forward IMHO

I have a phobia of flies so wherever he keeps them I will not be able to enter.

this takes me back to my childhood when my dad used to get maggots for fishing. I don't think mum let him keep them in the fridge. i think he kept them in the garage as it was pretty cold in there.

i used to love racing the maggots.

They keep well for ages in any cool area - we keep ours in the hall where it is very cold.
