If you have a lot of rice in your home and you can't eat it all at once, how can you store it for longer? The main factors affecting the storage time of rice are temperature, humidity and oxygen. It is best to store rice in a dry, sealed environment and not to expose it to the sun. Here are several ways to preserve rice.
1. Anaerobic preservation method
First put the rice in a ventilated place, spread it out to air, but don’t expose it to the sun, wait until the rice is dry, then put the rice in a non-toxic and less air-permeable plastic bag, tie the bag tightly, and place it In a cool and dry place, this can extend the shelf life of the rice.
2. The method of keeping kelp against insects
Dried kelp has a strong moisture absorption capacity, and also has the effect of killing insects and inhibiting mold. When storing rice, mix the rice and kelp at a ratio of 100 to one. After about ten days, the kelp is taken out and dried, and then Put it back into the rice, and after repeated several times, it can effectively prevent rice mildew and insects.
3. Hygroscopic storage method of plant ash
Put a layer of plant ash on the bottom of the container of enlarged rice. It is best to put plant ash in a gauze bag and place it at the bottom of the container. The rice needs to be blown and dried before being poured into the container, covered with a lid, and placed in a cool and dry place. It can be stored for a longer time in a ventilated place.

What should I do if the rice is really wormed?
First of all, if there are not many worms and the time of discovery is early, you can pour the rice out, put it in a cool and ventilated place, let the worms crawl out, and then sift it. There is basically no problem and you can eat it as usual.
If there are more worms, you can use phosphotazin plus organic acid to fumigate and kill. Put the worm-bearing rice together with the bag in a well-sealed plastic bag, that is, a fumigation bag, and then put a cup or bowl in the fumigation bag, and put 50 grams of vinegar in it.
If the grain does not exceed 500 grams, Just wrap one gram of zinc phosphide in paper and put it into a cup or bowl containing vinegar, without stirring, immediately seal the fumigation bag mouth. After sealing for five to ten days, all the pests inside can be killed. After that, the air is dispersed for two to three days, and the vinegar water and residue are taken out.
If it has been a long time since rice was found to be worms, and the worms have spread all over the rice, the rice is no longer edible at this time, and it can be fed to chickens or other animals.
