|I have this invasive vining plant (flower pictured) covering my shrubs on the side of my house that I just can't identify. It grabs with tendrils and is beginning to attach to the house.
Before I dig in at with some electric hedge trimmers I wanted to make sure it wasn't toxic.

|It's a Passion Flower (Passiflora species, not sure which one), complete with Japanese beetles.|

|Lovely Passiflora. You don't say where it's growing (state, country) but some Passiflora are considered invasive in some areas. I'm not sure if pruning with electric hedge trimmers will keep them from re-sprouting; you might have to dig them out to completely eradicate them.
We have quite a few listed in our database with photos for comparison: http://garden.org/plants/searc...
I think Passionfruit (Passiflora edulis) is considered a pest in some areas.
