Our house is actually an old barn built around it. However, the corners were left on the exterior to create a covered porch. We orignally treated with Penetreat and borate sticks in the ends.

I was told to paint the beams to deter the bees, which is fine but I need to clean and re-treat with a good sealer/insecticide/so
