Paint the wood a good exterior paint. Here a website that may help.( http://www.getridofthings.com/get-rid-of-carpenter-bees.htm ). If you want to keep the natural wood look there are treatment out there to help just check with your local hardware store to see what they carry.

That is what the pest guy told me - make sure a good coat of paint is on the wood.
