The wasp stings the small twigs to deposit its egg. When the egg hatches it starts to feed on the surrounding tissue gurgling the twig. This can be dealt with by injecting the tree with a systemic insecticide, so that any bugs that suck, chew or bore into the tree and ingest the insecticide and die.
If you just purchased a piece of property and are not familiar with the trees on that property or their growth characteristics, the best thing that you can do Is contact an arborist and have him or her help you evaluate the health of the trees on your new property.
