Freezing kills some bugs. I freeze mine and then dry can. I haven't lost
any flour or seeds (corn, barley, etc.) to bugs using this method and I
found one jar in the back of behind that was at least 5 years old. The jars
you are talking about will generally sufficient reseal themselves using the
dry canning method. I have the one-gallon jars.
