Sounds like you my have powderpost beetles in the wood, or something like them. I do not think it is necessary to dry firewood for two years, we always cut ours 6-9 months ahead of when it is burned and stack it under a roof and it seems to be pretty good and dry by the time we burn it.

I see powderpost beetles in ash cord wood that was cut in the fall and left in the woods over winter.They are everywhere so you will get them sooner or later.

Zach,
I made an oak china cabnet. Powerpost beatles showed up in the very top of the cabnet. I had one major battle getting rid of them. I turned the top part of the cabnet upside down on plastic and soaked it with Timbor.

If a person were to get powerpost beatles in the walls of their house, I think it may be next to impossible to get rid of them.

George

They require a certain % moisture in the wood. Once it's dry they go elsewhere so a house is usually safe unless it's made of heavy timbers.

The wood I used that had power post beatles was inside for 20+ years and dry. I wouldn't want to find out what it would take if they got in the walls of my house.

The instruction for my insert says to let it dry for at least a year, something about messing up the catalyst. Iíll have admit, burns faster and donít seem to put out as much heat.
