mmh – i’m with you on both the boric acid and the alcohol. isopropyl on a rag in a trashbag with the wood. don’t know the flashpoint but i’ve never had my lumber explode. boric acid in powder form can be mixed with a number of liquid bases and when the liquid evaporates the boric acid remains in the pores of the wood. thanks for bringing up the topic—- serves as a good reminder to pick through your wood and make sure you don’t have any uninvited guests…
