Just spoke with the person who gave me the wood. The boards were cut back in 2007, stickered, and stored in a metal shipping container that likely was 150+ degrees during hot summer months. Thus, likely I m looking at “vacant homes” for the bugs as that heat should have killed them off. Given the small size and relatively low number, I m also feeling better that there is nothing alive anymore.

You are most likely safe. Even if they do decide to munch on that walnut in the future … it’s not your fault! Blame Mother Nature. At least that’s what I tell the recipients of things I build from Ambrosia maple.
