Help Sign Bugs in my pasta!

I am not sure if this is the correct thread but when making dinner tonight i noticed bugs in my whole wheat pasta. I must have thrown out 25 boxes! I had it all stored in my pantry closet. How do you all store your pasta so you dont get thoses pesky little bugs? Any help would be appreciated.

If you freeze your pasta for 3-4 days before you put it on the shelve ,it will keep the bugs out.

it doesnt help to rubbermaid to protect LOL except from rodents and pantry bugs you already have in your home

the larva & eggs is inside with the pasta when you buy. dry pet food, hamburger helper, rice, flour etc.. The only way is like others suggested to freeze. Any grain product has potential to get critters over time as they get in there in the factory so you buy with the eggs already in there, when you boil or cook the product you kill that off. there is an actual FDA limit to how much bug they can have in the food
the aphids, thrips, and/or mites you can have in 100 grams of your frozen broccoli? Fifty-nine. in paprika- the average of more than 75 insect fragments per 25 grams

Macaroni and noodle products: Average of 225 insect fragments or more per 225 grams.

Mushrooms, canned and dried: Average of 20 or more maggots of any size or average of five maggots 2 millimeters or longer per 100 grams of drained mushrooms and proportionate liquid or 15 grams of dried mushrooms.

Do you know if diatomaceous earth works for flying pests? Every once in a while I get these lovely flying ones around my pasta, flour, etc. I have everything in bags, but after reading your posts, I now realize that is not a feasible solution for the long term.

I had these flying bugs that leave something that looks like spider webs in the dry foods. Once I got rid of the bird seed in my house, including the sunflower seeds, I never had them again.

I put moth cakes in my stockpile room and a couple of no pest strips never have a problem with bugs in there. Just those nasty fruit flies in my kitchen the no pest strips work there in winter but summers air conditioning they dont work. So i turned a spare room into my pantry room and keep the door closed and air off in summer.
And yes i have bought pastas and cooked them that night with wormy little bugs in them. My bird room with 50# bags of seeds no problem with the strips and they dont harm the birds.

I had a box with black bugs in it last year and I wound up opening up every single box in my stockpile and putting it in plastic bags so I could see thru the bags. There were some that had bugs in them that I couldn't see in the daytime (of rice) so I had to throw all of those out. There was a thread last year about ronzoni pasta having bugs in it. I started freezing all of my rice b/c the eggs are inside the rice and that is the only way to kill the eggs but I had no idea they lay eggs inside of pasta too.

http://www.afullcup.com/forums/kroge...full-bugs.html

I just found this on Livestrong:
"Place the [pasta/rice] containers in the freezer for at least a week. This will kill any eggs or larvae already in the rice. If you have a home infestation of rice weevil, simply leave the container in the freezer permanently. If your house is clean and you're just trying to prevent the bugs from hatching, remove the container after a week. The low temperature should have killed all the bugs." Read more: http://www.livestrong.com/article/47...#ixzz1aLdTdGrm

I guess that means the best time to stockpile is in the winter/dry/cold seasons!

ok; that guy was trying to scare you.(I HATE/LOATHE/DETEST/DESPISE HI PRESSURE SALESMEN!!!!) ... 'moisture' wont cause bugs, 'bug eggs' will cause bugs. 24 hrs is enough to kill them!! weeks in the freezer isn't needed; 24 hrs is!!! (sorry; no offense!!! was he trying to get you to buy something from him?? sorry i'm so cynical!! but i mean... his logic is straight out of the 1700's 'cornfields beget mice'!!! 24 hrs is sufficient to kill anything cold blooded (like a bug or a bug egg) weeks is overkill & moisture .... begets mold

dooode!!! this is a cheeep way to get rid of those fruit flies!!!! apple cider vinegar!! put it in a jar with a narrow lid- like a dish washing liquid deterg bottle.... something where they can fly in but not out of...

Fruit Fly Death Trap Hot Post from One Year Ago... | Apartment Therapy Re-Nest

there is a link with a picture; some people also say just mix apple cider vinegar with dish soap...... i dunno, i kinda like the physics behind the reverse cone, cuz so freakin' interesting how a population can be THAT stupid that they die!! (dude, seriously!! google it!!!! so cool!! i'm a bug sadist )


, it is so embarrassing that i know anything about bugs at all!!

dooode!!! this is a cheeep way to get rid of those fruit flies!!!! apple cider vinegar!! put it in a jar with a narrow lid- like a dish washing liquid deterg bottle.... something where they can fly in but not out of...

Fruit Fly Death Trap Hot Post from One Year Ago... | Apartment Therapy Re-Nest

there is a link with a picture; some people also say just mix apple cider vinegar with dish soap...... i dunno, i kinda like the physics behind the reverse cone, cuz so freakin' interesting how a population can be THAT stupid that they die!! (dude, seriously!! google it!!!! so cool!! i'm a bug sadist )


, it is so embarrassing that i know anything about bugs at all!!
I have tried the vineger and lots of other ways but i have tons of fruits and veggies for my animals 100 tropical birds that they hatch out constantly and prefer all that fruit. I left some in my car a few nights i got home real late no bugs but by morning my car was full of fruit flies. I check them all before i buy and never see any but in 6 to 24 hours lots. And bananas get yucky in the fridge plus i dont have space for a third fridge to put fruits in thier veggies take 1 and my coke the other is our food. I just got 12 bushels of apples local grown and left those in the car overnight not a bug in site.
But its hard for me to believe freezing the food will stop the grain worms and moths they live in unheated grain bins in winter then hatch out when they get warm again here and we have sub zero temps here in winter. I tried putting them in totes in my shed or garage unheated and had still found the little buggers the no pest strips work here. I buy a case every spring since they only last a few months.

A few years ago i found a catapiller type worm in apple cider- lots of corn borers in tops corn on the cob this year and i have found worms in canned veggies How they get in there whole i dont know since cider is strained and supposed to be pasturized.
