Fig borer

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?
