keeping wax worms alive

I've read that some of you buy your waxies in bulk. How do you keep them alive for extended periods of time?

I normally buy them the day I fish then put the rest in the fridge. They last a week or two, but many die. Do you use some kind of bedding and food?

If I remembe to take them outa my bucket, I just pet them in the basement. The basement is perfect for them. Last year, i used the same wax worm's for around a month. Not sure how many died, but I wasn't keeping track either. I have tried the fridge, but my fridge is set to cold for them, and they die withing a couple of day's.
