Bugs on ACQ (Treated) Lumber?
I was in the middle of setting up my railings and bought some pressure treated (ACQ) wood about two or three weeks ago. I stored it in my garage so that it would dry out a little better. At the time of purchase, I didn't know anything different about the lumber.
Yesterday, I picked one of them up, and it had a bunch of bugs all over it running around. They were very tiny bugs, and they were just on the surface. Nothing penetrated the wood. I haven't checked the garage yet, as I was on a mission to get done with the railing.
Does anybody know what these might be? I'm now starting to freak out that they were termites, but from what I read, termites don't like ACQ wood. Could it be something else? I live outside of Chicago, and it's been really HOT for the past couple of days.
