I purchased a bag of bulk organic mung beans, labelled for sprouting about one or two months ago.

I made a jar of sprouts immediately, and the rest of the bag in my cabneit.

I pulled the bag out tonight to make more...there are small dead black bugs inside the bag, and a lot of the beans now have holes in them.

What are these? I sorted out the bugs, and am now soaking 1/4 c. of the beans for sprouting.

Did the bugs come from inside the beans, or from my cabneit? Are the ones that do sprout safe to eat? I'm really cheap, and hate waste--so I still want to use the "good" ones if possible.

In the future, how should I store extra beans?
