Welcome!

Hookworm is an intestinal parasite - do you mean they are in your soil?

I agree with Sue. I know they can live in the soil. Can we see a picture?

Welcome to NGA, @sirtroy .

Did you maybe mean "hornworms" ? If so, you can hand-pick them, or spray with Bt (sold as Dipel, Thuricide, etc.). Or, just let them be if they aren't doing too much damage; then you will also be able to enjoy the Sphinx moths that they turn into (aka "hummingbird moths"). Smiling

There are several larvae that attack grape vines. Check out this site: http://homeguides.sfgate.com/g...

I don't grow grapes, so I can't provide direct experience, but the site seemed informational.
