Paint the wood if you want color, but it won't confirm any more protection than the pressure treatment. If you're going to stain it, use an oil stain. When it's fresh it will help, but when it cures it won't matter. And I have seen CBs attack PT wood (with or without stains) as well, although not that often, but they will do it. So if you do it, do it in the spring when you start to see the bees. And remember, the bees you see hanging around are the MALES, which possess no stinger. They are just territorial, confronting anything in the area, (you, me, the neighborhood cat or dog, anything that moves) however the only thing they have to confront you with is the loud buzzing, as I said, they are absolutely harmless. They only want sex, just like all males lol.
