I was soaking them in scolding hot water for 30 minutes and freezing them, but people were still complaining of the weevils. I thought only the nuts that had holes in it had the weevils. People are supposedly finding the weevils in the nuts without holes. I feel bad. We collect them all day long. Some that fall overnight get collected.
There’s also an orchard “sanitation” suggestion aimed at capturing grubs as they emerge by storing nuts in buckets. But the implication is that if you wait for grubs to eat their way out, the REMAINING nuts will be worm-free.
