we keep our house in the mid-high 70's in the summer. Above our fridge stays at 80 almost perfectly. So I put an inch of vermiculite in a plastic container with a lid. Moisten it really well, then pop holes in the lid. I mark the date of the nesting on the container. Then take it out and dig up the eggs and use my thumb to make a depression in the wet vermiculite to place the egg how it was in the ground (orientation wise), but each egg as an individual, not as the whole nest was. I also make a small dot on the top point of the egg so I know to keep that the highest.

Then set it on the fridge. Every couple of days I take it down and see if the vermiculite is staying moist, mist it if necessary (not directly on the eggs, though).

then later on I can see the babies hatching very easily.
