How to store flour and grains?
 
Anybody? How do you protect flour and grains from the insect pests?

There are many threads which have discussed this; have a look around using the search feature, if you can. A few are using mylar bags to package, oxygen absorbers, glass jars, plastic bags, freezing and those bags that you suck the air out of (can't remember the name). I also put a bay leave in with grains or flour. It depends on how long to need to store, and what it is. Good luck with your preps

Flour doesn't store to well, so freeze it.

You're better off to store wheat berries in mylar, and grind them into flour when needed.

That will stop it from deteriorating. But it may pick up smells in the freezer, and eventually it will get freezer burn...

Quite true. But that brings up the need for a grinder. Which is another discussion.

We store grains [Barley, oats, corn, sunflower] in 55-gallon drums with desiccant.

It works really well.
