Little red bugs in my flour
Posted 10 November 2009 - 04:59 PM
How did they get there? How do I never get them again?
Like I say this was a new packet and I've just checked all my other flour that had already been opened (and was perfectly fine until I put this packet on the shelf with them) and they were all infested too. I've had to throw the whole lot out which means no lovely fresh bread that I was really looking forward to
EDIT: UUrrghh!! I've just checked the other new unopened packets on the shelf and they too are infested. Has anybody else ever had this problem?
urrghhh I feel so itchy!!

If you've got room, it's a great idea to keep packets of flour in your freezer. It doesn't actually 'freeze' or clump together, but it stops eggs hatching due to the temperature.

What's worse than a weevil in a Weetabix?
would now be a good time to tell about the time I bit into a weetabix and THEN discovered the weevils?

It might be a coincidence that she bought a new packet that day though - they might just have hatched from one of the old ones (like someone said, it usually all has eggs in) and colonised quickly.
You should let the store you bought the flour from know they had weevils, stands a good chance all theor flour is infected and they will have to take of the shelves
