Larva In An Oak Tree?

We've recently discovered a hole in our oak tree, which has some liquid in the bottom, and is lined with long, brown slimy bugs that resemble centipedes somewhat. There is also a blobbish orange thing I'm assuming is a larva. Is there any way to safely remove these? Is it possible to just fill in the hole? And if so, what should I fill it with? Thanks tons!

We had A very large hole in our oak tree with many large ants in it.We mixed bag cement and filled the hole. The ants are gone and the tree is fine.We did it about six years ago. No ants and no hole now.
