I don't know what aquarium cement is but do you suppose any non toxic thing that we can squirt up there and it sets up would work?
I've gotten behind with the peach tree borers clean up and I"m afraid the tunnels are extensive now. I usually clean them up and poke around with a wire, then pile ashes against the trunk.

I've used tree paste made from cow manure and clay to some degree of success. I usually stick a piece of thin wire as far into the borer holes as I can and try to eviscerate the little bastards first, though. Lime plaster is also good on wounds, especially where bark has died back or peeled off...the light colour acts as a sunscreen.
