I saved a plastic-bag of beans in 2019 for this years planting.
To my disapointment, they were all bad due to pest infestation.
I guess i put the bugs in there myself with infested seeds.

Is there any way to kill off the bugs without damaging the seeds?

I was concerned that might damage the seeds.... but if one thinks it through, thats how it works in nature too (frozen in winter).
There are actually seeds that require being frozen to germinate. Many people also winter sow seeds outside so that they do freeze and then germinate on their own time frame. Just make sure your seeds are good and dry.
