1/4" to 1/2" bites out of my new crepe myrtle leaves

I bought 2 crepe myrtles (20 gal size) that looked fine and planted the two of them two weeks ago. One is doing very well but developed several leaves with 1/4" smooth curved "bites" out of the new young leaves. The other one I planted suddenly has almost every new leaf bitten down to the stem with several news leaves already being attacked. The "bites" are also 1/4" to 1/2" in length and curved on the leaf as if a small animal took a clean bite out of each leaf. Please advise what these might be. Evidently I need to work fast b/c this one is losing leaves fast to this hungry attacker. I do not see any bugs, aphids or beetles with my naked eye. Thank you.

Roundup on Oak Suckers

Our gardeners sprayed roundup upon oak suckers under our live oak tree, which is approximately fifteen years old. Now, the roots and suckers look black and I am very worried about the tree. So far, it shows no other signs of distress, but the blackened suckers can't be good. I don't know if the tree has received such treatment before. We moved in less than a year ago and prefer an organic approach, which we explained too late. Can I help the tree and if so, how? Thanks so much.

Brown spots,fading color on azaleas

80% of my newly planted (March, 2020) azaleas have developed spots & some leaves are fading into light green color. I also noticed 1 little growth (no idea what to name it) on a stem this morning 8/24/20). I’ve trimmed away wilted/brown stems. Sprayed with neem oil early this morning. Please let me know if you have any recommendations. I’ve lived in Sugar Land, TX (suburb of Houston) for 19 yrs & have always dreamed of growing azaleas... I really don’t want to see my plants die.
