trees dying - borer worms

There are many trees dying in our area from a small white flat headed borer worm. The trees die at the top first and then the rest of the tree dies. We have at least 10 that have died or are dying on our 5 acres. The neighbors have several. We border the Corps of Eng. land on two sides and they have lost many, many of their trees. I need to know what I can do to keep our trees. I understand that these worms have teeth and travel through the ground. We have sprayed the ground and trunks in hopes to kill these worms. They 'invade' hickory, white oak, red oak, etc. Many, many trees.
