Dealing With Bugs In Stored Food
I opened a box of dried rice to make gumbo this week and found a water bug (aka roach) had slipped inside and made a home. Maybe the recent hurricanes had sent more than abandoned pets to St Louis, lol. I separated the little guy out and gave him/her a squash. I'm not fond of those critters. I did though, continue with meal prep.
Seriously how does everyone handle pests in your dried foods?
My go to way was just air tight containers, but with stocking up in the beginnings of the pandemic, I have quite a few boxes of prepared foods. Most have their dried components inside of plastic bags. I do seem to remember a few that just poured their major item into the box and sealed that.
Suggestions/ practices/ experiences?
