Do you also have little gray moths flying about your kitchen? I had a 
moth/worm infestation in my kitchen. This is what I did to get rid of it:

First I went through the cupboards and threw out anything infested. Then I 
put anything grain related in thick plastic containers. The worms or moths 
seem to be able to eat through most packaging, but not heavy plastic. Then 
I put cedar blocks in the cupboards.

I haven't had the moths back since. I'm still very careful when I open my 
flour canister to put the lid back on immediately. I also make sure the lid 
is on tight. The moths are pretty sneaky about flying into open containers. 
 I hope this helps. I sure hated it when I got a surprise in my noodles or
