Problem with false powderpost beetle infestation in the half log siding on my home. The structure is 2 by 6 frame with insulation, logs on outside. If I do nothing about the beetles, will they infest the whole struture or only the logs?

They could get into the whole structure. You will need to strip the log siding and treat with a borate then re-stain. If it isn’t real expensive siding it may be cheaper to just install new, but i would treat the new with borate if that is that route you take.
