Wintering plants

I am new to the Vinginia area. I have Canna lilies and Verbena in pots on my patio. Do I need to bring them indoors for the Virginia winter?

Need to radically prune a wild grape vine

There is a wild grape vine at my house. For decades it has been guided back and forth across a trellis suspended over the front porch. Throughout the spring, summer and fall it provides a really nice shade and fruits very small bunches of grapes that are not all that tasty. I cannot find an answer to my question regarding pruning of this monster. I'd really like to prune it back to places where the vine is about an inch or so in diameter. There are no buds or shoots located on these larger vines. So, if I really want to cut it back, can I do so without killing the thing? Can I graft some younger shoots into it along the way?

Tomatillo bugs

This bug mainly eats the leaves on my tomatillo plants but may be eating some other leaves too, not tomatoes or lettuce. I have used soap sprays that are ok for organic gardening with no luck. Tried squishing too but they are very plentiful. I'd appreciate any suggestions.
