Mold and bugs on a small palm plant

This plant has had trouble for a while now, it kept losing fronds and I thought it was due to the little scale looking white bugs I kept finding on the leaves. However tugging off some very dead fronds I accidentally uncovered what sure looks to be mold inside one of the stalks/stumps... There were a few little wriggly clear worms, too. I don't know what to do for this guy, I'm hoping this clump at least will dry out and kill some of the mold, but if it has infected the other stalks too I don't know how to help. Is there anything I can try to kill the mold and help the poor thing heal?
