I have heard of them bug problems as well. Although I have never had the misfortune. One solution would be to "cook" it out. I do this with wood from outdoors I plan to use, sometimes soil, etc. I have had good results with substrate mixes as well. Say 35% Forest Bed and 65% fir bark. I like the mixes personally when I want a natural look, and these also make a good base for a vivarium mix. Just depends on your exact needs and what you like to see.
