    Freezing caterpillars?

    Ok, I have about a million caterpillars around my property and the sarracenia aren't up yet..... Has anyone ever frozen caterpillar for later use? Thawed of course.

    No reason it shouldn't work. Keep in mind that the thawed pillars are likely to be very squishy which could make handling ....interesting.

    They're squishy anyway.....they'll just be floppy instead of wriggly 😀.

    I think he meant that they will be more squishy, but freezing them should work.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?
