So after reading all of your claims about WBS being better than rye for spawning, I decided to go out and pickup 14 kilos for the next "season."

Now the stuff I picked up is made of these grains;

Hard Red Wheat,
White Proso Millet,
Red Proso Millet,
Oil Sunflower,
and peanuts...are these supposed to be there??

The next uncool thing is that there's little bugs in it...wtf! Should I still use this WBS (wild bull shit) or what?

I dont think the penuts would harm it in small amounts..if you can pull any out I would. Other then that it should be fine. Bugs dont matter, pressure cooker will kill ANYTHING living, mold, bacteria, bug, or egg.

"life is like a drop of rain getting closer and closer to falling into a lake, and then when you hit the lake there is no more rain drop, only the lake."

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)

Well I would think soaking it and then cooking it would take care of the bugs. But I am not positive on this. However I would recommend getting rid of the peanuts and the sunflower seeds. You can always do a test jar and see if the bugs will cause any problems. Me personally if I saw this I would just feed it to the birds. I too am pretty new to the wbs. After reading up on it and seeing all of the problems people have with contams with wbs I was a little afraid to get my beak in. But so far I have had no problem and find it easy peasy. The wbs that I use consist of:
White Proso Millets
Sunflower Seed
Calcium Carbonate

I soaked it over night cleaned out all of the sunflower seeds, rinsed it a couple of times then pc'd for recommend time. It took about a week to colonize and now I am getting ready to put in the pooh. So far so good.

You might just want to find a different brand of bird seed.
Good luck!

lol...definitely don't worry about the bugs. Mine came with maggots!! The pressure cooker and simmering killed them real good.
