I purchased a large bag of fruit tree fertilizer last fall. The bag was kept in dry garage over winter. I went to use the fertilizer the other day and there was a bunch of small bugs with wings in the bag. Seems they burrow into the fertilizer. Is the fertilizer still good? Where did these bugs come from?

That has happen to me before then I bought a 5 gallon bucket with lid to store the fertilizer. That has stopped that from happening again. If you have a few bugs, you will be okay to use but if its infested with bugs, throw it out. As to where they come from it’s like moths they just show up from your surroundings.
