Can rice cause bugs? cause i came home from running around doing errands and ect and went into my room and i had like little flying bugs and grasshoppers everywhere!! i hurried up and got the ferrets out of there and threw them in the bathroom and cleaned the cage..and killed all the bugs..my mom said sometimes rice can carry bugs? it better not be because of the rice cause i spent 14bucks on that rice! and the ferrets just love it..i will be so sad

I haven't noticed any bugs in my rice box. I hope it's not from yours! I just can't imagine any bugs alive right now since it's Dec., but in the southern states I guess it could happen!

Oh sorry to hear that. I would just toss it. I've had bugs somehow get into my flax seeds for the life of me I could not figure out how that happened since I stored them in a closed glass jar but they managed to get in. I keep lavender, tea tree, and rosemary in my dry foods pantry. I've been doing that for years. I haven't had a problem since that time. Insects don't like any of those herbs.

If you think the bugs in the freezer is bad, I've one that is way worse. We get people who bring in a fecal sample to have it tested for parasites, and they keep in their frig from the time they collect it, till they have time to bring it into the clinic. Fresh :shit: in your frig, I swear there is no way any of that is going in my frig no matter how well it's wrapped.......ugh, nasty.:no:

Sounds like fruit flies. Depending on where the rice was stored before you picked it up-they very well could have come from the rice. Its warm enough in most parts of Arizona to keep them going.
I say toss the rice-even if you did put it in the freezer. It wont kill any eggs lying around and will most likely bring on more bugs. Especially in Arizona-its a desert state. Alot of bugs hang out in the sand without you even noticing.

Wish I had better news for ya.:hammer: :hammer:
