I don't recommend it- firewood is filled with tiny insects, like ants,
termites, etc.- and they come out of the wood and infest your house
keep it just outside your door, and bring in only enough to fire your
stove for a day at a time
Don't you need to bring in the queen termite for it to be dangerous?
Just a few of the workers will die off eventually and not be a problem.
Chances are you would see a whole nest in a piece of wood, when you
were splitting and sawing the wood, no?
First, cover the wood outside- top and a bit of sides. Keep water out.
Carpenter ants attack relatively wet wood, or die, once brought in.
I've never seen termites in firewood, ever, in NE USA. Spiders, however
will survive the trip into the house; if they're a problem, wear
gloves, and remove them outside. Watch out for Brown Recluse.
Stacking wood inside, where it would receive some heat radiated by the
appliance, does 2 other good things- dries the wood some so it burns
better, and humidifies the house some, which is a real good thing in
Moisture content of wood is affected by temp and RH of storage area.
The higher temp indoors will help keep the % moisture in the wood down.
Dehumidifier would not seem advisable.
