No it's not. Put your mind at ease, sometimes you will not initially see any sign of borers even if you have them if they are in their larva stage.

Here is a closer view. I have other plants with the same problem. What can I use to fill the hole? I read somewhere that liquid electrical tape can be used? My husband has never heard of LET before and thinks I'm loco.

Either DAP or LET will work. Your choice.

I would use DAP Cedar Tan. Works great. LET is really not a filler type product.
