got white worm like powder strings on crape myrtle

What is that? a fungus or an insect. It looks like a white string like worm from a distances but when you get close ...it's just dry white powder shaped like a worm. It's almost like something came out of the bark and left this trail behind???

I found out it is a Asian Ambrosia Beetle. Bad News!
