Good morning

That is the larva of a root-borer. This link gives some information on the group. https://wiki.bugwood.org/HPIPM:Prionus_Longhorn_Beetles

About the best control option is a drench application of a 12 month tree and shrub insecticide (imidacloprid). That should kill larvae in the soil.
