I have an organic angus beef ranch with 300+ pecan trees, which suffer from borers. I need an organic solution. Any suggestions?

Is this borers in the tree or the pecan nuts?

I would like to know also..... We have the same problem. The Borers damage is in the nut. The worms hatch out and eat the nut, then climb back up the tree and drill holes in the nuts and lay their eggs again. I did not know if the little wasps would help or not, We have had the problem now for 4 years.

Howard mentioned on his show Sunday that now is the time to use the tricogamma (spelling ??) wasps for pecan case borers. He said it would get rid of 90% of the problem which is perfect for nut production.
