The places in Dallas & FW have websites.

Type Bent and Dent Faulkner MS in a search engine, I recommend because its a metasearch and compiles from all the big names plus others.

Tip: Grocery Shopping at Salvage Stores

Shopping at salvage stores can save you big bucks on groceries. But when you're there, take note of the environment. Are there small bugs or tan colored moths flying around? If so, pick the items to purchase carefully. Check each item around the part of the can where you open it or where a jar's lid fits. Look for moth eggs or larvae.

If a product you were planning on buying has one or more on it, do not purchase it. Just leave it at the store. Also beware of cereals, flours, rice, as they can be inside the package already and you won't know until you get home.

If you've never had a moth infestation in your home, and had to toss out all kinds of foods, you're very lucky. Mine even got in unopened bags of dried fruit, nothing keeps the little critters out but canisters. We had to "bomb" (bug foggers) our whole house twice before getting rid of all the moths!

I had to totally re-do my whole kitchen, and pantry. But not until after having to toss out at least a couple of hundred dollars in packaged foods! Now, I keep a bay leaf on every shelf in my kitchen and pantry. I replace them 1-2 times a year.
