What the best way to get rid of critters

Ron in Drums PA
>A month or so ago, a friend shipped me a section of mesquite crouch. It's been wrapped in a double layer of plastic since. I just open up the package and noticed some dust and at closer inspection I found some black and yellow bugs.

I was hoping someone would have a suggestion on how to best kill these critters.

When I was a kid I would catch bugs and place them in a jar with nail polish remover (acetone), this killed them pretty quickly (Don't ask, I wanted to be a entomologist). Do you think if I placed a small jar of acetone into the bag it might kill the insects?

Any suggestions will be helpful. Thanks.
