I have an 'unhappy' fig tree. There appears to be a minute borer or something digging in at the end of new branches/tips. The figs currently on the tree are being affected, with tip of leaves and shoots falling off. I can see some 'sawdust' and generally a clearish liquid starts weeping. Can anyone help with an organic solution?

It is a wood borer of some kind, but it is hard to say what kind as there are several that can attack figs and you can only identify it if you see it. This article covers several kinds of borers and recommends treatments: http://urbanrancher.tamu.edu/retiredsite/bugs/b5086.pdf
