Throw the container with the animals away - and keep the next batch in a:Closed container with a Tight Fitting LidPut your flour and cereal in a container with a tight fitting lid, something like tupperware. That way they can't get in. In dog and cat food, freeze the food over night. same with Indian meal moths, they are about an 1/8 inch wide, 1/2 inch long.
If they're in your flour, you can sift them out and then put the flour in an airtight container.
Weevils form in flour because the adults lay their eggs in the flour. During manufacturing, the government regulations allows a certain percentage of weevil eggs in the flour.
no. weevils are not harmful. If it is found in flour, then start over with cooking
throw all the flour products away...buy new pruducts, keep in ziplocks and store in the freezer.
Freeze the flour overnight or for a few days.
Weevils do not tend to live underground. Depending on the species, they may live in grains and dry foods, while the boll weevil lives in and feeds on developing cotton bolls. Weevils have been known to live in packets of flour, biscuits, nuts and cereals. There are also aquatic weevils which live in temperate lakes and ponds. There are around 60 000 species of weevils, and only one is known to live underground.
insects that are in corn and eventually also gets into flour in the process
Breads and cereals
there was a celebrity party on bin weevils but they got rid of it.:(
The only problem would be if you told anyone about it. It is just a little extra protein. That may upset some people, but if you run the flour through a shifter, that should get rid of most of the weevils and there are no diseases carried by weevils. People may not want to think about it, but we all eat a fair amount of bugs every day. The USDA even has an acceptable amount of bug content in breakfast cereal. If you absolutely must use the flour, a very fine sieve should separate out the weevils. Freeze the flour for at least two days first, to kill the insects. However if you can simply buy more flour, do so: any large infestation can affect flavors. If weevils are a recurring problem for you, wrap your flour packages in plastic and keep them in the fridge. Because the weevils could well be invisible but present before you buy the flour or other dry goods, freeze the package for two days before refrigerating; this will kill off any eggs or larvae. When you find weevils present in dry foods, wrap the package in plastic and dispose in the bin. You must also vacuum the cupboards where the weevils were found and then wipe thoroughly with a damp cloth.
it is not possible
They get into the flour because that is what they eat. If you cook the flour in an oven the heat will probably kill the weevils but they will have already had eggs. If they are dead it is safe to eat them because they have not been known to cause human deaths or diseases. Hope I answered your question. Chao!
