Store cocoons at 35-38°F and 60-80% RH [eg. in fridge]. If cocoons mold, rinse in 0.05% bleach (1 tbsp. 5% hypochlorite to 1 gal. water). If cocoons dry out, moisten or add damp paper towel to box. When temps begin to warm & further cold freezes not forecasted [or 1 week before budbreak]: remove padding, align holes, tape emergence box shut & secure to south-facing dry bee habitat near buds.
