Controlling Pests in Nuts
Live bugs are a common problem in nuts and some other foods. While there are some methods used to control and get rid of pests in nuts, many people find food treated with those methods even more undesirable than the bugs themselves. For instance, ionizing radiation can be used to sterilize or kill pests by damaging their DNA, but it is not always effective and the safety of irradiation technology is questionable at best.
