How can moths be prevented from hatching out of dried chiles? I read somewhere that there is an herb that can be put in with chiles when storing them, but I don’t remember the source. Any help you can provide will be gratefully appreciated.
Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to prevent moths from hatching out of the chiles if they have gone into the chrysalis stage. However, if you see the larvae (small caterpillars) crawling about, place the chiles in the freezer for a few days and that should kill them.
