Easiest treatment where you can find the hole is to soak a cotton ball in xylene and ram it into the hole. Seal it with plastic wood putty.

If any eggs survive and go through their life cycle successfully, they can often dig their way out.

Make sure everything is painted well. If it's stained, re-stain in the spring, before the bees start hanging around.

Go through my CB page, these tips (and others) are described there.
