You think it has weevils?

I have never seen weevils in rice, However I have never bought a 50 pound bag of rice before either...

Not only am in concerned about COVID-19... now I gotta be thinking about Weevils.

Anyone ACTUALLY find Weevils in bulk bags of rice from Costco, or the like?

I used to buy rice by the 40 pound bag. I never had weevils, but I have had grain moths. Not sure if they came from the rice or for other things.

I have a CO2 tank and a nitrogen tank, so I could fill the bucket with inert gas after adding the rice. That would take care of any bugs.

Ahh bugs schmugs. They're a crunchy additive.
I have had some weird moths on pasta many times before.
They are not harmful, just not appealing.
American pantries, filled with grains and pasta will have huge colonies
of flying critters in a few months.
Best to store this stuff in a cool, dry basement. I would say the fridge, but likely that is already filled with -
BEER!

Yessir, it has eggs of some insect or other in it. Refrigerate, freeze, or cook it.
WTF are you doing buying a 50 pound bag of rice???? Unless you meant 5 pound, my bad

They are a protein additive to your diet and you are not even charged extra for the weevils

My wife always freezes the rice overnight before storing it on a shelf in air tight containers. That will kill any insects or insect eggs in the rice.

And a source of protein.

In Cambodia, many rice paddies have a termite mound in them. The locals eat the rice for carbs, and the termites for protein.

I know for cigars, they recommend 3 - 5 days freezing to kill any bugs.
