Where oh where do I begin? We have noticed some little moths flying around our house lately so the hubby pops on Google to investigate. I simply have written these off as a side effect of kids going in and out of the house in the summer and leaving the door ajar. Nope, Google has enlightened us to the fact that they are hatching from larvae that has somehow infested our food. Gross.
So, we go through the cupboards looking through the most likely infected food: dried fruits, cereals, pasta. The good news: that stuff is all stored pretty much in the same cupboard. The bad news: it is in the cupboard we eat out of the most. Really bad news: upon closer inspection we find several larvae on the sides and tops of these shelves. Grosser.
So the hubby starts to pull all of the open food off the shelf so we an locate the source of the problem. We start with the food that has been opened the longest and work back from there. I am feeding Lily dinner in the next room so I am not in on the action (also bug killing and hunting falls squarely in the manly job category). The hubby exclaims, “Found it! There are tons of them in the walnuts.” I am so glad we have found the source until I realize I ate those walnuts…last week. Grossest.
