I just put l-inks! (Stupid spam thing won't let me write the word...)

2 years ago we got those. They ended up in weird places in our house. It took me a year to really make them gone. Sucks.

Sounds like a good excuse to get a flame-thrower.

I have no idea what they look like. I have had those worm things invade my flour (one assumes they were shipped with the flour at the time of packing since they were in the bag when I opened it). But I've never seen a weevil. Ick.

What the heck is a boll weevil doing out and about in the winter (oh, i forget, it doesn't get that cold where you are as a general rule) and not in a cotton patch? Hasn't it heard of the Boll Weevil Eradication Program? I chopped cotton as a youngster (HATED IT) and tromped cotton as an adult (HATED IT, TOO).

Tina- Funny you should say that. My Dad and I are having an ongoing discussion about what I have in my pantry. He said it's a wheat weevil, but my weevils are too fat for that. It has been decided that my weevils are fat from all the pasta and therefore only LOOK like boll weevils, but are in fact, very well fed wheat weevils...

Heh.

I've had various bug infestations. The problem is that for any given box you don't know if its infested until you open it. So when I get worried, I put things that MIGHT have infestations in the freezer. That seems to kill them, and eventually I move the food out of the frig.
