    Does anyone know what these little black things are, I'm assuming they are what is chewing the leaf. 20180416_102818.jpg

    Those aren't pests I have. You must live in a relatively warmer climate; my vines aren't even swelling buds yet. Have you tried spraying them with anything? Sevin/carbaryl or malathion are cheap and easy to try out.

    That looks like the poop left behind from whatever was munching on your grape leaves.

    I should have mentioned the plants are in my greenhouse. Weather here (upstate NY) is still below freezing with no sign of warming.
