Flour is easily infested with bugs.  You should never store flour near other foods that also get bugs, like cornmeal.  If you find weevil or bugs in your flour, you can sift the flour and remove them.  A better solution is to make your flour store longer by storing it either in the refrigerator or freezer.  You can also add some bay leaves, which repeal bugs.
