Food safe oxygen absorbers

I've purchase a large amount of white rice (Jasmin, Basmati) and put into quart canning jars with tight lids. I've been reading about oxygen absorbers and wonder which kind would be the best to use. Also, I've read that oxygen absorbers can kill any bugs that may be in rice, flour, etc. Is that true? Thank you!

I submitted this question a few days ago and received a response. However, I cannot find the emails now. Anyway, We have gladiola that are not opening up. The stalks and buds look very healthy, but the blooms do not open up and they have strange markings on them--white lines, etc. I have planted gladiola in this same location for a number of years, and they were always just fine. Some bulbs are new this year and others are some that I have kept over the years. None of them are right. Is this likely a disease or could it be the soil? Other flowers and vegetables near them are doing well. I usually had lime every spring and I applied NH3 Nitrate along with compost from our lawn clippings, etc. I don't know how to submit pictures except as an attachment to an email. Thanks for your help

Old weedy Asparagus bed

Our new home has a bed of asparagus,but it is heavily choked with grass and weeds. Still, the asparagus is trying to keep coming, but not really enough at one time to eat. We love asparagus and would like to help it be successful what should we do? Dig it up and replant? Carefully try to pull all the grass out? I read you should remove the male plants? Thanks for the advice!

Douglas Fir

My Douglas Fir has bluish/ gray spots on trunk & branches. I've only lived on the property for 2 months. Looks like quite a few branches were removed on north-east side of tree. Is there any hope?
