Fire-wood should never be against the house
I’m sure we have talked about fire-wood and the problems associated with it. But lets discuss the potential for all kinds of pests.
- The photo below allows termites access by visually impairing the ability to see mud tubes.
- When you bring the wood in, only bring in what you will use immediately.
- Inspect the wood before hauling it in, pests like wood borers, rodents and wasp can over winter in it.
- If you must store wood over the year, place it away from the house on a stackable device.
There are always options for storing wood, just use common sense.
