It sounds like carpenter bees. These relatively gentle bees prefer soft wood that is unsealed and weathered but will also infest treated wood. To avoid infestation, paint or varnish the wood. You can also try to prevent nests from becoming established because the bees will bore into wood close to their nests. You might find the information at this web site helpful:
