Hi, I had little Beatles in my rid-x box they feed on the yeast in the ridx box.. they are harmless and the best thing to do is dump the box in the toilet and their tunnels homes, and flush the toilet. I guess we can't keep ridxrid-x for long periods. Rid-x ought to put it into plastic resealable bags

The best practice would be to purchase one box at a time and use it immediately. If one were to save a box for later, using a heavy freezer bag would not allow them to escape and contaminate paper products and linens kept in the same cabinet. Glad you found them before they "escaped"
