Bug Problems?

Are bugs getting into your spaghetti, flour, beans and grains? Those pesky
little black bugs that invade your spaghetti, flour, dried beans, and grain
goods hate spearmint. Place several pieces of spearmint gum, unwrapped, in
your cabinets and they will leave your goods and home alone. Also I store my
dried goods (as well as popcorn kernels, salt and pepper, etc.) in wine bottles,
with the corks on tight, and they can't penetrate the seal. It also makes the
kitchen look more interesting with all the different color and shaped bottles!
