Good Tip for Preventing Pantry Bugs in Flour, Bird Seed, etc

Nonchemical control of stored seed/cereal products:

Either destroy the infested products, or salvage them by heating in an oven at 130 degrees Fahrenheit for one-half hour, or super-cooling by placing in a deep freeze at 0 F for four days.

I freeze my flour and bird seed before I open them to kill the eggs and prevent bugs from joining me in the house.
