Thanks HorizontalMike. I actually ready your story prior to posting this. As a result, I pulled the bark off of all live edges and got rid of all bugs that went along with them. A few days of sitting outside with a tarp on top and they were all gone.

I see NO insects on the wood. Just these tiny piles of sawdust roughly 1/4” diameter. I sure don’t want to lose the lot of wood or infest my shop…....

I’ve been drying this with a fan & dehumidifier. The RH of the shop is going down and I get a constant drip from the humidifier hose. I do have a moisture meter and I’ve been probing a few of the 1” stock on the exposed edge. I’m really worried about the 9/4 stock because it is drying more slowly..
