Add a Bay Leaf to Pantry Items to Keep Pests Away
The best thing I have ever found to keep pantry moths or any other pest from getting in your food is to put a bay leaf in the box or package after it is opened. There is something about a bay leaf that they hate. You can get these cheaply at a $1 store.

I have been using these in everything from corn meal to flour to box mixes - anything that will end up with bugs or moths. They work wonderfully. I have been using bay leaves for over 30 years.
