Yep combustion temps kill all the bad stuff. For some folks it's the psychological thing of seeing it and thinking that they're breathing it in and eating it....By the time that wood turns into smoke it's HOT!

I set aside some mulberry and found it riddled with bugs when I went to use it. Since then I have taken to dusting the wood with diatomaceous earth. It's the skeletons from plankton that lived in the ocean and settled to the bottom. It's uses as an organic insecticide and also for filtration (pool filters, for example.) It kills bugs mechanically by puncturing their exoskeletons with sharp edges.

It's a mineral and won't burn. It should be harmless to eat but I would avoid inhaling it (like any dust.)

I'd wash my hands good after handling that it might be contagious

I charred half my pile yesterday. Ran out of light and the wife got home. I feel a lot better doing that. And I get to feel like a 10yr old again playing with fire just for the hell of it!
