Have you ever pulled out a container of rice or a tub of flour only to find that it has little critters in it?  I have a natural solution to that!

Avoid the creepy crawlies that seek shelter in you flours and rice. Place a few bay leaves in the containers where you store these ingredients, seeing as bay leaf has natural bug repelling qualities.

  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.
