shade,preferably with the lid off.
To stop the smell,use clean sawdust or bran which
has been slightly dampened with an atomiser and
change it every other day.You will need a maggot
riddle for this job.
To make them smell a little sweeter you could use
any one of the flavours available in tackle shops.

What I have found is keeping them in a stainless steel bowl lets them last a lot longer . . any heat created by the grubs is conducted to the steel and then the surrounding air cools down the container . .
I use two old dog dinner bowls . . cos if you think about plastic bait tubs are perfect for insualtion . . nearly like keeping maggots in a flask !
Pop to B&Q and get some green minimesh (the sort cut from a roll) think we paid about 6 quid and got enough for 3 riddles (measuirng 24 * 12 inch) knock up a frame and matching box (2) and you are in business . ..
I generally use Polenta bought in bulk from the local Asian stores . . this is dirt cheap compared to a bag for a quid from the tackle shop . .

I always ensure that I do have some turning to casters, a valuable bait.

As a preference I prefer Flour.
A mini fridge is gr8. You can hide it in places not seen by others. Great if your Mum/Wife doesn't understand...
