Wood chunks and termites
edited November -1
After cutting up a pecan log into chunks, I noticed a few termites in the plastic bag I put them in. Is soaking in water a good way to make sure I have removed them all or any other suggestions? Thanks
Might drown the termites. Why not just toss the wood on the fire and smoke them for appiteasers??
I was surprised to read how museums kill termites (or any other vermin) in old artwork: plain ol' CO2! If your wood is already bagged, I'd see if you can get some compressed CO2 and flood the bags and seal.
I wouldn't trust water alone; wet wood is actually how termites smell wood.
Live fast, die young, and leave a well-marbled corpse.
Just put a few toothpicks into the plastic bag with the wood chunks, leave the top open, and move the bag close to your neighbors house... This will take care of the problem.
Termites can pole vault and are very competitive. heheheee.
Barbecue is not rocket surgery
I'm with Richard. Who cares? Cook em up... more protein.
Avoid at all costs that vile spew you see rotting in oil in screwtop jars. Too lazy to peel fresh? You don't deserve to eat garlic.
