maintaining a microworm culture long-term

My fry are just outgrowing microworms and I don't plan to breed again for maybe 6 months or a year. Is there an easy way to store my microworm culture, long-term, until I need to revitalize it?

I've read that freezing does not kill nematodes - could I freeze my culture?

Store them in a cold place.
They will last longer.
But if u going to wait that long.
Just dump the old culture and when your ready to breed againjust buy a new culture.
Microworm very cheap.
