what does a oak tree borer worm look like

Asked May 21, 2016, 6:42 PM EDT

I have an oak tree approximately 15 years old & sap is pouring out of areas where I pruned some limbs last year. When I investigated the situation I found an infestation of small worms in the areas. They are approximately 1 inch long, black on their back, light tan underside, numerous tan legs & appears to havea back of armour plating. Can you help me to identify this pest? I'm in fear they may kill my tree soon. Thank you
