we got worms (they were moth lavae i think?) in our rice, flour and bread crumbs and some herbs. it sucked and i now check everything i eat..... so if you freeze the rice then put it in the cupboard cant they just get back in the container>? is it just the fact i need to find a new container? with a better seal..... like a suction lid jar type?

Pour yourself a drink, put on some lipstick, and pull yourself together.

My Mum always put a Bay Leaf in hers. She said it prevented bugs.

After living a while on a farm I certainly learned my lesson about sharing staples with pests. When I bring packages of food home they go into the freezer for a few days right away. If there isn't a lot of room I will divide and conquer. Then into a mason jar in the pantry. I never put away food in a bag or box, grain moths can and will get into any sort of container that doesn't totally seal. I save those desiccant packets from crackers, vitamins etc and will sometimes include one in the jar (can be glued to the lid) for freshness. I'm always on the look out for large jars at thrift stores and yard sales, I wash out all the giant pickle jars from costco and I purchased a few gallon jars from a restaurant supply place recently since we're buying so much food in bulk. It was worth it because lemme tell ya, I would CRY like a baby if a whole 20 kilos of flour got buggy.
