Description

These distinctive tracks were made by Elm Bark beetles. Eggs are laid in the parental gallery, the blunt line in the center. When the larvae hatch, they eat their way outward, growing larger as they eat and leaving the telltale tracks that look like legs of a giant centipede. The larvae pupate and emerge through the outer bark at maturity.

Scolytus multistriatus is the "lesser" Elm Bark beetle, while Scolytus scolytes is credited with the greater spread of Dutch Elm disease. So these tracks may have been caused by either species.
