If they are just under the bark and get exposed during handling, my chickens make a feast of them.
Pine Tree Killers. They just got another one of mine. Creepy when it's real quiet out and you can hear them grinding away.

And a Bluegill or Shellcracker will climb out of the water for one.

We get grubs just like that in Arizona.
They bore into the roots of Palo Verde trees .
Probably why Palo Verde trees fall over so often.
Landscaper told me every Palo Verde has at least 1 grub eating on it.

I don't know what kind of grub it is but I think I saw Andrew Zimmern put one on a on a stick, crisp it up a bit and make a snack out of it.
