|Based on your desription I am not sure what type of pest has invaded your grapes. You might want to check with your county extension (789-7865) for a specific diagnosis and then, based on that, the most up to date control recommendations for your area. They may also have a suggested spray regime (both with what and when) for growing quality grapes in your area based on past experience with both insects and diseases. In the meantime, to reduce the chances of reinfection this year, clean up and remove and destroy any prunings or other grape debris.
