I have had problems also.  I now store all pantry items in heavy/thick plastic containers.  If there are moths already inside,  it keeps them there.  To get rid of them,  the moth traps are excellent.   In our cold climate , we see more in the hot weather. 
In the remainder of the house I have little organza bags with a mix of natural herbs.  They seem to work. 
I will post the mix if anyone is interested.

When I buy ANY grains, seeds, nuts or flours, I put them into the freezer for at least 48 hours and some I store in the freezer until ready to use them.
Corn grits and corn meal is especially problematic because the eggs of the critters are so tiny that putting the meal through a sieve won't catch them.  

I also have a lot of problems with hulled millet if not kept in the freezer.  Freezing does not kill the eggs of the moths that infests it and they will hatch a couple of weeks after it has come back to room temp.

I have a freezer just for storing this stuff because I use a lot of grains and nuts and it's better to spend the money on a freezer than to repeatedly toss out grains with bugs or rancid nuts.  If you add up and compare the amounts, you will see my rationale.

My screen on the forum is so TINY I can barely see it. I don't think that it was like this before 3 days ago and think I must have clicked something somehow perhaps late one night when I may have had a glass or two of wine....hmnn.... does anyone have a tip that may increase it?

Have you checked the zoom size under the View menu? It should be at 100% (or larger if you like).

Hope you can sort it out CP!

I use glass containers as much as possible in my pantry. I find that moths can get in and under plastic lids. When we had a moth outbreak about 10 years ago, moths even got into the glass of my clock!
I like Nay Nay's idea of the cotton balls with essential oils on them. Cedarwood EO would also be a good addition.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

On my laptop everything else is normal, and its set at 100%. When I reset it to 125% it put all my emails etc into a different font (for the blind), but the forum still stayed tiny. If there is a View menu on the forum I can't see it

If you right click up at the very top above where the address bar is you should be able to selct menu bar etc. If the menu bar is showing then you should have file, edit, view, fabourites, tools and help menus showing. The zoom is under the view menu. I also think the shortcut to change to 100% is Ctrl & 0. Then if you want it larger you use Ctrl + and Ctrl - for smaller. Hope this helps.

Glad that I could help. So many on this forum have helped me, it's nice to be able to give back.
