There are little white worms coming out of my

chestnuts in the shell.  How did I get these and how do I get rid of them?

Can't do anything now until fall after the nuts drop and the tree drops it's leaves.  Get some dormant oil and follow the directions for your tree...........spray again in the spring up until the buds open.  after that I just spray the trunk because of the bees.  Spray every branch & nook & cranny, this smothers the bugs. & larvae.
I put Nematodes, GrubAway fungus, and Met52 in the dirt under the trees where the weevil larve lives over the winter.
