pest damage to trees - any ideas what is doing it?

This damage has shown up in 3 different types of maples and now river birch.
the holes are different sizes, the damage was all done underneath the bark, didn't notice anything until bark was looking weird, i pushed on it and poked my finger through

i also noticed little wood pellets around trunk and where a root was near the surface, i guess about 1/8th in in diameter and oblong.

the holes where the critter came out is different sizes and i am pointing to them with the pencil
