How many are you talking about? How long do you want to keep them. We have a styrofoam box with air holes in it. They must get air. The box is almost as big as a case of beer cans. We keep 500 in there stored in the refridgerator. They are packed in damp peat moss. Coffee grounds will help also. We keep them 4 to 8 weeks like that. Don't let them freeze.
On one trip we went on one of the guys objected to worms being in the refridg. He put them out on the cabin porch, Fed $40 worth of worms to the coons. He was almost neutered.

The guy at the local feed store has his in little light blue plastic containers with holes poked in the top for air, and the soil is dark and rich, he also has crunched up peanut shells in the dirt, keeps the containers on the counter, room temperature. Always have been satisfied.

My husbands grandad when he was alive had a compost heap, just a circle of wire really, he would put dirt and food waste (egg shells, banana peels, stuff ike that) grass clippings and such in it, he always had worms for fishing. :)
