It is a beetle larvae, one of many species it looks real close to the longhorn beetle larvae and yes they tunnel through wood, Elizabeth if it can fit into a microwave that will also kill them anything with heat such as your oven for a short bit but not to long, the loose wood that the beetles cause can add character to the wood and you can harden it up by dripping super glue on it, the super glue finishes great it never leaves any sign.
