wood boring insects

Just this Spring while pulling weeds around my screened in patio I noticed sawdust all over some of the weeds. In searching around the area I can see a hole behind the downspout where it is coming from. Now I can hear a sound almost like water dripping coming from that particular post. This is all pressure treated lumber. What kind of insect could it be and how can I get rid of it?
Thanks for any advice.

Are you sure it's an insect? I have wood borers in a tree and the woodpeckers make this sort of mess too in trying to get them.

Probably a carpenter bee. Spray any aero insecticide into the hole; wait until you know she is in there based on the noise you heard, or at dusk/dawn.
