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
"

In a post-global disaster world, predators and tyrants will have the best two-way radios, and they'll use them to surveil you at a comfortable distance.

What will you have? Signal flares and red bandannas?

If so, when you least expect it, the predators and tyrants will come to take a spoil and they will torture, rape, and kill without mercy.

This is why Radio Free Earth authors Marshall Masters and Duane W. Brayton have an urgent message for everyone with a serious interest in preparedness. That being, analog RF (radio frequency) is the heartbeat of freedom. Accept no substitutes.

Watch our free videos to learn how to stay safe and free with an affordable strategy for two way communication, both near and far.
