Here are two adresses that you might find of
interest on the subject of borers :
The first one shows the picture of the particular apple tree borer that I
spent the weekend struggling with and the second one, by the Texas Agricultural
Extension Service, gives an overall description of the many borers that exists
in Texas, and here too, I discovered.

There are quite a few borer species that can attack
apple trees. I am pasting here part of a message from the apple-crop list that
From the apple-crop list, May 16,
Some recommended controls of:
borer: Pouring boiling water into the borer's
entrances or chambers, or
using a flexible wire for locating the
deep-tunneled borers, or cutting
them out of the shallower tunnels with a
borer: Cutting out and burning the infested twigs.
appletree borer: Shade the trunks of young trees in early spring
summer, as the beetles are attracted to sun-warmed trunks; or
them with wire or a knife and then painting the tree's wound(s);
controls of this insect are the preventative
Pacific flatheaded borer: The larva mines both injured and
with a preference for limbs exposed to the
Shothole borer: Keeping the trees in good vigorous health and
is advised to minimize attacks by this species. Also remove
prunings and dying trees. Another recommended control is to
lower trunk and branches during egglaying.
If I can
locate more-updated (or more specific) information, I'll gladly
on to you.
