    Default weevils in saffron threads

    Several months after opening a box of saffron threads, small weevils appear even though the box is kept closed in a pantry. Any suggestions as to how better store the saffron &/or prevent &/or safely remove the weevils? Thanks

    Perhaps storing in an airtight container would be better. I try to store all my flour in airtight containers to stop weevils but I've never stored saffron before.

    Water and air creates weevils, better to separate these to elements.
