My mulberry tree had a two big injuries last year. One due to heavy scratch, and second I cut wrong branch at wrong place. It has been healing it very nicely so far, almost 90% done. But yesterday I saw worms in it. The sap has started to leak a few weeks ago and it also used to leak last year when tree got this injury. What should I do now about the worms? Worms look like maggots but their size is very small, like 2mm to 3mm long.

Yesterday, I cleaned the worm using pressure water and applied soap water mixed with neem oil, but it didn't work. Worms are again here today.
