Bugs

Ok so I'm running into a lot of little bugs found in my flour and rice and I'm not sure what to do. I buy my rice and flour from Walmart and sometimes I get their brand and still bugs are in the flour and rice. I know its not my home because its a newly built home. So does anyone have any suggestions?

    sIt's obviously coming from the food brought home, but I have to say bugs move into even newly homes.

    I just googled "getting rid of bugs in rice and flour" and came up with this, not sure if that's the same bug you have, but it will give you ideas of what you can do. For example putting your rice and flour in the freezer for a week after you bring it home, start storing your flour and rice in air tight containers....

    Here's the link:

    We store all our large quantities in 45 lb buckets or 5 gallon size. We have rarely had any issues with bugs.

    Love the idea of Bay leaves! Thanks for the tip!
