Help needed for a pest issue - 'warehouse moth'


Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

I don't know about all the debate about hermetically sealed, but I do know that Villa Andina ships me 15 kg boxes of beans with 3 5kilo bags vacuum sealed. There are no problems with moisture, mold, moths, or shipping damage. I also dont have to worry about attracting moths at my facility as the beans stay sealed until I use them. I am sure any inquiries as to how this is done or works "scientifically" could be directed to Villa Andina athttps://www.villaandina.com/

I attached a pic of the sealed bag with my hand for scale.

Villa Andina from Peru ships their cocoa beans in a shrink wrapped bag and I have never had problems of molding or moths from them. They put 3 shrink wrapped bags in a box and then ship a pallet full of boxes and you dont get the damage you get from bags on a pallet.
