Looking for ideas on how to store wood with out it getting buggy. Apple sems to be the worst about getting worms and sawdust under the bark. I do keep a lot of my wood covered so it is always dry. I am in central Illinois if that helps.

The main woods I keep on hand are Oak, Hickory and Apple.

Keep it off the ground, I like to use pallets double stacked so there is plenty of airflow.

Damp equals creepy crawly insects, dry favors rodents. What is the lesser evil of those choices for you?

I bought 9 concrete blocks and 6 pressure-treated landscaping timbers. Holds 3 cords of wood easily without attracting bugs and cost less than $30 total.
