I have actually found a good recipe that works very good. First boil some water, then put some powdered Boric acid. Then drop a few wiggs in and let them sit in their for a little bit. Take them out and let them dry for a couple hours, I have found that this is the key step for myself. Then put a few drops of annis oil in a small container and add the wiggs in ang roll the container to spread the annis on the wiggs. This isn't a joke it actually works. I've done better on these than I have on live ones at times.

I know of someone who preserves mayfly's in rubbing alchohol in canning jar until the next year. Should work for wigglers too. Even put in green food coloring to make green ones.
