You have 'Termites' in your wood pile!

Dan Edward Phllips, Broker/Owner Eureka, CA on Termites in your wood pile.  It could save you thousands of dollars.  Unbeknownst to a lot of homeowners they could be bringing in the termites in their wood piles.  Be careful.  Pay close attention to the tips provided by Dan, and drop by his post and leave him a comment

In this area of Northern California, if you have a wood burning stove or fireplace and a wood pile to feed it, you have termites in your wood pile!

1. Keep the location of your woodpile away from your home, do not store wood against your home.

2. Keep your stored wood covered and if possible, off the ground.

3. Limit the amount of wood you keep inside your home.  We do not have snow in this area, getting to the wood pile may require a rain coat but you will not have to shovel snow to get to the wood pile.

4. Owners of wood burning stoves and fireplaces should consider a pest inspection on a more frequent schedule than a home without one.

I request that wood piles be in the yard and covered rather than up against the house or in the garage and I frequently REMOVE them when owners leave them and the property is rented for the FIRST time
