As you are gathering all of the ingredients to make these cookies or other delicious treats it is important that you are on the lookout for any pantry pests. That’s right, pantry pests including food eating moths and beetles may be lurking in your baking ingredients. The Indian meal moth, a popular food infesting pest, can lay up to 300 eggs at a time which can cause serious infestations of larvae and adult moths in your flour, other baking ingredients, and throughout your pantry.
To prevent an infestation of pantry pests this holiday season, be sure to inspect all of your pantry items before tossing them into the cookie dough. Also, if you need to purchase new ingredients, try to inspect the packaging for any signs of pests or especially damage to the packaging. Another good way to avoid pantry pests is to purchase less used pantry items in smaller quantities thus reducing the time on the shelf.
