The best place to store your firewood is outside, away from the house, instead of stacked right up against the house. Firewood that is stacked right up against the house can give insects an avenue to enter the house or hide out. Insects such as cockroaches, termites, carpenter ants, beetles or pill bugs can take up residence in the wood pile. It is also a good idea to not store firewood inside the home either. Any insects that are dormant in the wood can warm up enough to wake up and take up residence in your home. Stay warm this winter, but keep the bugs outside!
