I was just wondering, what are your preferred methods for storing rice, flour, grains etc. for long term storage?

I bake a lot of my own bread using name brand flour here in the UK. I have often found small mites in the flour, usually every fourth bag i get a small black spot that jumps around in the flour. The wholemeal flours seem to have more than the white flours. I suppose this is because of the bleaching process with white flour.
Before storing any flour i suggest you place it in a freezer and freeze it fully for a few days to make sure any bugs in it are dead.
You can also throw the flour in a microwave and that should kill any bugs in it.
