It depends on the type of bug as to its removal. If you see tiny piles of sawdust around a hole that you swept the day before you may have powder post beetles. BoilerUp21 is correct in their removal.

You may call your states local county cooperative extension or agriculture agent to help you with bug identification and treatment. Be mindful of inhalation / respiratory problems when working with treated lumber. Again your county extension agent should be helpful.
