Reddish Brown Bugs in Kitchen

One day I decided to cook some chicken noodle soup because it was cold outside. As I was adding the seasoning I saw that there were a lot of reddish brown bugs with hard shells in the pot. After realizing that it was dead bugs I decided to open the top of the seasoning and saw a hand full of bugs.

They're also on the counter and in the cabinets. They are only in the kitchen. Can someone tell me where they come from or why they are taking over my kitchen?

When my mother had this it occured on a regular basis. We didn't know where they where coming from until one day I opened a cabinet that had a lot of extra dry beans in bags that my mother had been given. And found the source. The heat of the refrigerator I'm sure helped the insects flourish and the bugs I guess came out after the critters turned into bugs (From caterpillars). We cleaned out the cabinet and no more bugs.

I didn't realize my mother hadn't put these bags of beans in the freezer for a few days. Doing so will kill any eggs that may be in the beans (Sorry to tell you but there usually are bug eggs in most foods (Especially grains) so freezing them for about 3 days kills them.

Also helps to them put them into some heavy duty zip lock bags or jars so no bugs manage to get into the beans or what have you.

So somewhere in your home there is a cabinet or container that has these little guys hatching and coming out. You just have to search your entire kitchen and even if you find it keep searching as the little bugs can reinfect beans. Once they turn to the bugs they can easily chew out of the plastic bag the beans where in.
