Just make sure you freeze any bulk flour, corn meal or baking mix you get from the store for a week or two if possible. I think you can also bake it
at a low temperature, and storing long term in buckets would be a much better solution as well.
We bought a big thing of pancake mix, and even though it had a zipper seal and I had it in an extra large ziploc bag it still got bugs. Those bugs
then escaped and by the time we realized what had happened they were all over our pantry. GROSS GROSS GROSS!!!
It had been in the back of the cabinet for a while, as we just don't eat pancakes/waffles that often.
I ended up throwing out most of our dry packaged foods and grains even if they weren't obviously contaminated just to make sure we had all the little
buggers out of the house.
We are now restocking our pantry a little a time and its sort of depressing.
