When I was in Boy Scouts and we shucked corn for the first time we were told not to throw away an ear if it had some bugs in it. Ince you boil the corn, the bugs are dead and there is no threat of illness. They get sterilized.

Those mac-n-cheese boxes should have been just fine (of course you wouldn't get me eating it).

The bugs I found don't look like weevils, but I threw away the foods the bugs were in. All of the foods hadn't been touched in months, so no big loss. The flour hadn't been used in years...but it was in a plastic storage container. The pancake mix was in a Tupperware container. So idk what else to put things in. The freezer?

After cleaning your pantry and cupboards, place any starchy foods in either airtight containers or store in the freezer. Their presence does not mean you aren't eating your food fast enough, they just arrived with something you recently bought. I must agree, they make you feel grossed out.

All the little brown bugs are gone now... Yay.

I cleaned with vinegar and they didn't come back.

Also be sure to sterilize (freeze for 2 weeks) any heating pads/eye masks you acquire that use rice or corn. I know someone who got a weevil infestation in her linen closet from these.

It just goes to show that weevil knows no bounds
