Summer's heat and humidity can take a toll on not only your birds but also the bird food. Because bird seed is not treated with insecticide there is always the potential for bug larva to be in any bag. What the bugs need to hatch is high temperature and high humidity. In the summer make sure to store your bird food in a cool, low-humidity temper controlled environment. A basement or pantry area is usually suitable. Avoid hot places like the garage, porch, or car. If the bugs were to hatch and turn into pantry moths get the bag out of your house quickly. You can still feed the seed to the birds as they'll eat the bugs you don't want the bugs in your house.
