If a little diatomaceous earth is mixed into the flour, weevils either won't touch it, or will revert to being part of the flour... :P

Yeah, R.R. the diatomaceous earth is a great idea.
Question: Can the weevils chew through a foil wrapper?

Good question Barb - I prep old-school with buckets and desiccant, so have not caught up with the mylar bag movement. 

However, I did learn from the Amish to place bulk storage grains into a chest freezer for 72 hours before caching them, and am told that insects won't survive.

So glad to "glean" anything I can about how the Amish do things. Haha glean, pun.
I appreciate that idea about freezing grain first.

historical
gather (leftover grain or other produce) after a harvest.
"the conditions of farm workers in the 1890s made gleaning essential
"
