Wrap Pasta to Prevent Bug Infestation

As careful and clean as you try to be, there is a possibility of bringing a bug-infested box of pasta home. If you don't have enough containers, wrap each box in a plastic bag and seal tightly. This will prevent the infested box from spoiling other foods in your pantry.

This is a good, common sense tip. It caused me to think of something else that might help. What about storing the pasta box in the freezer for a week prior to putting it on the shelf? Think that would kill any varmints in the pasta?

I put all my flour in the freezer for 24 hours to kill any potential bugs. I guess it would work with the pasta, too.

Actually, both ideas sound good.
I have not had a problem but why wait for one?

Thanks for the suggestions.

Stored Grain Beetles will chew a hole through any flimsy plastic wrap. You must use glass or hard plastic containers. But if you have ANYTHING in your pantry that is infested, rest assurred, infestation will spread. Best to check (open your product) everything if you suspect Stored Grain Beetles, Indian Meal Moths, etc.
