[NAFEX] Larva in Pear limb

I noticed that on a lower small limb on my pear tree(name unknown at  
the moment) all the leaves had turned dark brown, almost black. I  
pruned it off, and in the hollowed branch was a larvae of some sort;  
grossed me out as I had already cut it in half with the pruners, so I  
did not examine closely.
  I see no other sign of die-back; should I be checking the bases of  
my trees for borers of some kind?
