Keeping Worms out of Flour and Oatmeal

How can I keep those little pesty worms out of my flour, oatmeal and other dry products? I remember a good tip a long time ago, but cannot remember what it was.

Thank you,

Peaches

Is it getting wormy after you buy it or coming that way? If coming that way, bake it to kill them. Then, sift and repackage it into an airtight container. Bay leaves will help keep them at bay to a certain extent. You can also store the dry products in your freezer to prevent them as well.

Always put flour and any grain in the freezer for 24 hours to kill bugs and their larvae.
