In current flour beetle infestations, discard suspected dried goods products in sealed plastic bags in outdoor receptacles. Toss all out-of-date dried goods or those you haven’t used in a while. As some homeowners bake or prepare special dishes only for special events and holiday gatherings, dried goods can sit for months and attract flour beetles brought in from infested products.
