Re: Kitchen nasties: weavils

definatly a different sort of weevil than the ones that I experienced!!
The weevils that I had in flour are miniscule in size, you do not see any tell tale trails and they do not turn into moths!

I seem to remeber my friend in America storing all sorts of dried foods in her huge fridge because of the 'moths' , this did seem a bit extreem to me but after reading this thread ...perhaps it wasn't...she was talking about having to have a 'mothbomb'set off in her house to get rid of them all.

We do have moths that eat woolen clothes though,pesky things that they are.

Re: Kitchen nasties: weavils

Hi white rabbit. I can buy soy, rice, buckwheat ( would need to "cut it" with "normal" flour as it has a strong taste) from my local "big two" supermarkets- one starts with "C" the other with "W". Find them in either the baking aisle or the health food section.

As for the "more exotic" flours: chickpea (besan), amaranth, spelt etc., the mega health food stores seem to be located in the inner west (Glebe and Rozelle), the east (Bondi Junction, Bondi) and the north (Willoughby and Hornsby- the latter is new but part of the Bondi Junction, Willoughby chain).

Give me an idea (vague) as to which would be best for you and I'll send the address and phone #.

Hope this helps.
