Too many mealworms!

I have a colony of 20 workers and I recently bought a pack of mealworms. There are too many mealworms and some of them have already started to change into beetles. Can somebody give me some advice please?

Freeze them. Sick them in a mason jar and freeze them. Store them in the freezer, and then when your colony needs one, take it out, chop it up (no need to thaw( and stick it in their outworld.
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.
