Bug Tip Tuesday | Keep Firewood Away From the Home

The winter season is also a popular time to snuggle by the fireplace with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate. But, if you are planning on bringing firewood into the home to start a fire, it’s important to inspect the pieces of wood for pests that can easily hitch a ride indoors like spiders, termites and ants. Outdoors, firewood should be stored at least 20 feet from the home on a raised structure, such as concrete blocks.
These tips should help reduce the possibility of encountering unwanted visitors in your home this season, but if pests do become an issue, contact A1 Exterminators to inspect and treat the problem.
