Help!

Something seems to be killing large portions of a couple bushes in my yard. Any idea what it is? Can they be saved? Thanks for the help!

JrBrett; Hello and welcome!
Can't tell what kind of bush that is , and don't know where you're at, but it looks like the bad kind of bugs really love it.
I'd look around and under the bushes and maybe even in the surrounding soil for roe (eggs) or desiccated exo skeletons and take it or them to your local extension office for I.D. and treatment options. Using a broad spectrum insecticide might cause more damage than the problem. It may also be something that 'rides' along with the bugs as an infection or disease.
Hopes this helps.
