Okay, I have a problem.  I had all the seeds in a big sealed 
envelope.  When I opened up the envelope to sort through the seeds (to save 
some for my own garden) I was greeted by a dozen small beetles which had 
obviously "hatched" from within the seeds.

How can I be sure if there are no more beetles?  I'd hate to have these 
sent abroad and introduce an unwanted pest somewhere far away (California, 
Canada, South Africa, etc.).  Any suggestions?  Dell, have you ever sorted 
through donations only to find them "contaminated" with hitchhikers?
