Started unstacking and moving my pile of QSWO to get to the pieces on the bottom of the pile. There is some PPB activity. Drenched both sides with Boracare. Got more to do. Now I am wondering if I shouldn't cook the little bastards?

I really don't want to throw the wood away.

Would it be better to make up a styrofoam box and heat it to 150 degrees for a while or take it to a kiln or rely on the boracare?
