Hello, I have a grape vine (only one). Today I found around 25 of the leaves rolled up with black stuff (maybe poop) and a few small(1/8"long 1/32" wide roughly) white eggs? With only a small amount of the leaves actually eaten. I can't find these on the web. Hopefully you will know what they are and what to do about them. thanks jim
