At least I assume that's what they were. Whole cupboard FULL of little mothy and crawling things shock. I have chucked out a year's worth of end of half-eaten flour, pasta and rice and disinfected the lot.

I opened one of the flour bags and something flew out

Thats why you need to keep flour in an airtight container

I once flat shared with a very house proud guy who had lovely pretty ceramic pots for all his rice, flour, sugar etc.

After about 3 months of living there, I decided to bake, so got out the sugar and flour, opened them up and the contents were moving.

Weevils, ants, little creepy crawly things. <shudder>.

I spent the next 2 hours emptying all the cupboards and doing deep deep cleaning grin.
