It is always dreadful when one has not used the flour, meal, or other dry staple for some period of time and when it is needed, it is full of little brown bugs. The solution is to have on hand and use Indian meal moth traps in your pantry and other storage areas. These little traps are not overpowering with an obnoxious odor but the male moth that is responsible for the breeding of the female moth cannot stay away from them. He enters the trap and is “trapped” therefore the little brown bugs can be no more.  This is good news in that when you are ready to use your dry staples, they are bug free.
