We've had quite a few of these annoying pests around our yard (and even invading our house a time or two) in the years we've lived here. When scrounging for wood last fall I came across a couple nests as well. So, I know the woods of my (rather small) backyard are likely full of them. So - given that I want to start stacking and drying my wood back there, will they be a problem? Are they going to invade my stacks and thus my house when I bring in the wood to burn? or are they not interested in wood once it starts to season? What can/should I do to protect my stacks from these and other pests like them?
