They look like roundhead borers otherwise known as longhorn beetle. I’m pretty sure once you strip the bark they will be gone. Because it was standing on end it allowed the wood to wick moisture up into it. Those beetles work on the moist sapwood just under the bark. Once the bark is gone it will be too dry for them.
