Starting some time in late 2009, I got an infestation of what I am told are Indian grain moths (or flies). They lay their eggs in the grain or flour, and make a real mess of it. They're about 1 cm long and look almost like the grain. Here are some close-up photos:

Since I took these photos, they have infested large parts of my grain store. If anybody knows how to get rid of them, I'd be grateful.
