Halacha - bugs in flour
Submitted by Linda  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

Your afterthought is correct. You could have cleaned the sifter well and resifted the flour. Sifting it two more times would have been a very prudent idea. However, since your intention was to be careful regarding the serious prohibitions regarding consuming insects, you will not lose any money due to your diligence. Many Poskim hold that expenses incurred from all Mitzvos are repaid from Shomayim and not just expenses for Shabbos.
