I have a very healthy fig tree full of fruits but all the figs are falling. Fallen fruits are full of worms. How can I treat my plant?

Your fig may be affected by sour worms (which are the larva of dried fruit beetles). These larva attack open eye figs (figs that have a open flower hole rather than a closed flower hole). Here is more information on this pest:
