    Hi Appleboy,

    Here's info on the hemlock borer with it's triangular head.

    I came up with these pests, but you will have to search at www.google.com to get info on the larval stage of these pests.

    Here's another site that might be helpful.

    Maybe someone else will have a better idea of what pest you have.
    Good luck,
    Newt
