Bay Leaves and Weavils

One of my neighbors gave me a tip that I had not heard before. We both have magic mill wheat grinders--the electric kind. They are very hard to clean and every once in a while I find dead weavils in the metal bowl thing at the bottom. It would frustrate me as I have a very clean kitchen and I clean out the magic mill every time I use it. She told me to throw a few bay leaves in the metal bowl thing and I will never see weavils again! Weavils dont like bay leaves --who knew--and what an easy fix!! I threw a few in there about a 1 1/2 weeks ago & havent seen any weavils. I also threw a few in my pantry by my flour just to be safe. I hope this works and will let you know how it turns out.
