Last year I had an infestation problem with my firewood. Some type of beetle(s) burrowed 20 to 30 holes in just about every piece of wood I had. The holes were almost completely through each piece and stopped almost at the bark. When I knocked the bark off I could see white worms inside each hole. In the spring, these worms grew into flying insects about the size of wasps. I would guess that I lost over 1/3 of my firewood due to these burrowing pests. This year I covered my entire wood pile from top to bottom hopefully preventing these pests from getting to my wood. The question is, will my wood be seasoned well enough to burn this winter? It has all been stacked on oak pallets so it’s off the ground. Mostly oak that was cut into rounds early 2007 and split in March and April of this year.
