Do you know where I can find this?This is not the same as Lemon Grass (Cymbopogon citratus).

I have large oak trees and I noticed at the end of the summer there were small branches with 6-12 leaves falling off the trees. When I looked at them closely, I could see a worm inside the branch where it broke off the tree. Are they harmful and if so how do I treat them? The trees are 40-60’ tall so a regular sprayer won’t reach them. Rob
