    Default Corn meal in motion!

    Drat!! I was all set for corn meal muffins, but noticed movement just
    when I was going to crack the egg.

    Keep it in the fridge! I once noticed caraway seed movement when I was
    adding them to sauerkraut.

    I bet they'd stop moving if you baked them. :-) Think protein!

    Can't do it. Never could. Watching meal move churns my stomach.

    I usually do. This was a Jiffy muffin mix with a 12/08 expiry. I'd
    tossed some earlier-dated stuff this morning and figured this would be
    okay. Barf.

    NO, Barb, I couldn't either. It gives me the willies. Years ago I found a
    moth in a box of cereal. I threw out the entire contents of the pantry.
    Ugh!

    OTOH, I have known people would have just sifted the meal and moved on. I
    don't want to eat there.

    About the moth thing, what did you do? I have recently seen 'a moth' flying
    around in the den. I thought it was just a stray moth who found himself
    inside and ignored him/it. Now I have learned that moths are a real
    household pest. I have even killed some of them. I haven't found any in the
    pantry but I know they must have some food source. So what did you do
    about your moth? Did it turn out to be just one or were there more? Did you
    call an exterminator?

    Where did I read this story? About sailors plucking the bugs out of
    their hardtack. Throwing away their best source of protien.

    I once had an infestation of tiny moth. Eventually tracked them down
    to living in my garrlic. If I knew, would have used them for garnish.

    Luckily it was confined to the pantry and only a couple of boxes of cereal.
    There were numerous moths and larvae in the two toxes. I think I must have
    brought it from the store when I bought the cereal, but none of the
    products were old. Still, I was afraid of further contamination. After I
    disposed of everything, I washed everything down with bleach water and
    allowed it to dry. I didn't restock for several days. Didn't need an
    exterminator.

    They do come from the store. I buy flour, a national brand, and
    immediately transfer it into an air-tight canister. One time I bought
    store-brand flour instead of national brand. When I went to get some
    flour, it was moving. Nothing else in my pantry was effected as the
    moving flour was in the air-tight canister.

    I only buy the national brands now and I have never had the problem
    again. If I see moths flying around in a grocery store, I tell the
    manager and wait a few weeks before I'll purchase dry products there.

    I'd give it a pass too, and I'm generally adventurous with food. <g>

    Freezing dry goods for a few days when you buy them is supposed to be
    one effective way of killing weevil eggs. I'm just glad that I have the
    space to refrigerate most of my dry goods. The only other thing I've
    lost to bugs in the past couple of years was a can of paprika in the
    spice cabinet. I cleaned the entire cabinet out and freecycled any
    spices I did not use on a regular basis that were still good.

    I was purchasing some bulk ground orange peel a few weeks back and,
    while it was not moving, there was webbing in it from the moth larvae.
    I pointed it out to a clerk and she took it off the shelf and said she'd
    inform the person in charge of that.

    I suggested that they check the other slow sellers. ;-)

    I bought lemon peel instead.

    I'd wait until I saw a few more and make sure they all looked the same.
    Against all odds, I found a cockroach in my house twenty years ago,
    killed it and didn't mention it to my wife. I've seen no other nor
    evidence of any since. I had been to a river that had cockroaches around
    it the weekend before and think I rolled one up in my camp clothes.
    After ten years, I broke the story gently to my wife to prevent
    hysteria. We have moths occasionally. Kissing bugs (Western Conenose
    Bug) and black widows get my immediate and undivided attention.

    I had an infestation one time and never want to go through that again.
    Speaking of stores, every time I go in the local pet food store there are
    moth flying around. They're often in pet food, cat litter, even the
    outsides of pet food bags or cases even if they don't get in. They're
    almost impossible to avoid.
