We do not have information on sealants prior to painting. A well maintained, painted wood is rarely attacked. Take a look at our publication on carpenter bees for prevention and control information http://extension.umd.edu/sites/extension.umd.edu/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG29_Carpe...
