How do you guys keep your smaller scraps? Do you just toss them in a bin or something? And how do you keep them bug free?
The problems I have are that I have very limited space, and where I live (Ocala, Gainesville FL area) we are having one heck of a population explosion of brown widow spiders. I kill upwards of 10 very small (harmless) babies a day and some of the adult females I have found are truely scary. They love things like piles of wood scrap. I need to keep them out or at least under very tight control. But many times the smaller scrap stuff (1 foot to 3 or 4 inch) has come in very handy for jigs, etc., so I can't just toss it all.
Edit: oops, forgot to add, for those who don't yet know, the brown widow really exists, and is closely related to the black widow, in a good news/bad news way - The good news: they inject less venom when they bite. The bad news: brown widow venom is twice as toxic as black widow venom.
