Well, I hate to admit how long I store some.
It's recommended that all frozen rodents we used in a year or so, regardless of how you freeze them...
But I often keep rodents for several years, as I like to have an emergency back up on ice, and I sometimes don't rotate my old stock properly
I'm currently starting a bag of pinky rats that says June 95 on it..They have lots of white freezer burn marks, but my baby ratsnakes don't care... This is an extreme...
If you rotate your back up, every year or so, and make sure there is no air, and the seal is good, you should be fine.
For extra long freezer life, freeze them in water so the dehydration will be from the ice rather than from the rodents body.
