I picked up an easy score of a truckload of almond wood. There was a forked piece of trunk or branch, it was heavy, I dropped it and the fork had some rot, full of wood dirt and COCKROACHES! UUUGH! I hate those damn bugs. When I dropped it, they all scattered like they do and disappeared. I probably brought a bunch home with me. I sprayed the wood with Spectracide, hope it helps. I wont be bringing that wood in unless it goes straight into the fire.
