The first time I heard about these nasty butterflies was through a friend who had this recurring problem for almost 3 years. 3 YEARS!!!! She literally threw away the contents of her pantry 3 times!…to finally overcome it.
No need to describe her look when, during a supper at home, she saw a specimen fly lightly between my flour and rice bags…
Well, yes. I have the habit to keep, as most of the people, my pasta, starchy, and other delicious foods in their original packaging. Although I had a clue as to where they came from during my last trip to the local oriental grocery store, where many bugs fully lived, you should know that they can also come from outside….
Anyway. I went in offensive mode. And here are the results of my research.
