A large ice chest with a big air pump and an air stone will work. If the air stops, the bugs will die very quikly. if kept cool and well airated they will live for several days.
If you place them on a damp towel on sealed ice in an ice chest they will live for about 24 hours. Do not let the ice melt on them, keep it sealed. I use water frozen in sealed plastic bottles
if you get a soft one, it will probably die no matter what you do.
