I believe cedar is naturally bug proof.

as said Cedar is bug proof. If you want to be sure just for peace of mind, just sprinkle some 7 dust on it, and brush it in, let sit for awhile and blow off clean with compressed air.

Cedar is "bug proof"? I wish!

I built a nice base from cut cedar/juniper fence posts that were about 2" in diameter. I set the base aside for awhile and returned to find little mounds of fine wood dust. Called my Dad, who used to be in the pest control business, and he said it is likely "powder post beetles". He said options would be to build a small tent around the base and fumigate it, or treat each entry into the wood with a bulb duster and some Sevin Dust.

REALLY aggravating, since I've got most of the base and lexan work done, complete with mud base and cattails.  Aaaaarrrrggghhhhh!!!!!!

(By the way...  powder post beetles can ruin your house like termites. Keep an eye out for these little mounds of wood dust around your house / in the attic.)

Not 100% bugproof. As it breaks down certain bugs will move it. Some just to live others to bore and not eat it. I soak mine with pickling crystals then powerwash to bring back the golden ceder look.
