I have some spruce and balsam fir logs that I am going to use on my log cabin (repair/addition. Some logs are 6 months old and they have some insect holes that I found when stripping bark. Can I use these logs? Should I keep them away from my good logs while they all dry? Can the logs be treated to kill whatever made the holes?

Thanks, Chris

Logs should be peeled immediately after harvest to keep bugs from attacking them. You should peel and treat with Shell-Guard. Call Dave at 800-564-2987 to purchase.
