Green worms on grape leaves

Looking for help. Planted eight grape vine plants last year for first time. Today noticed green worms on leaves of three plants about 3/8 1/2 inch long with single dark antenea sticking out ends. They are on bottom of leaves and are eating holes in them. What could they be and what gets rid of then ?
Thanks Steve

Re: Green worms on grape leaves

I think it may be sawfly larva. I have the same problem with perennial hibiscus.

Re: Green worms on grape leaves

PaulaCat thanks for reply. Been out of town from 4th until now. Local garden shop recommended Insecticidal Soap an organic spray. It took care of problem with one application. Just read label and Saw Fly larva listed as one of the things it is claimed to eliminate. My guess is you nailed it. Thanks for help identifying the nasty little things.
