  1. Oooh…nice tip! I found a couple of bugs today while sifting, so I will do this trick right now.

  2. I keep mine in rhe refrigerator and never have bugs. I would think the flour, etc, would pick up the taste of the bay leaf.

  3. You can also stick the flour, rice, etc. in the freezer for a few days before you open it. That will kill any weevil eggs.
