Danged bugs all over my nice firewood. I got about 5 truckloads from a friend that was clearing a few trees for some more tillable acres. They are aggressive suckers, they will "attack" you if you get close. At first I didn't know what was happening, and maybe I freaked out and swatted and ran around in circles like a little school girl being chased by a boy with cooties. When I calmed down I took a picture and did a search on this forum and the internet. Tried spraying them with ant killer. They weren't phased at all by that. Then got out the Wasp/Hornet spray and that seemed to kill and repel them. Just a note for anybody who might run into them. I absolutely cannot believe the quantity of them that essentially came from what looks like solid wood. I also can't believe how aggressive they are for being such an otherwise nonthreatening bug. That and they were all mating like crazy. Anyhoo, I got some good firewood out of the deal and plan on splitting and stacking this all as fast as I can get to it. I still don't know what to do with all this danged firewood that has these giant three inch thorns on it, maybe I should throw that stuff out because it's such a hassle.
