Angry New plant - new bugs - of course!

I don't feel like looking these guys up cause I'm PO'd!!! New bugs attacking my first time Passi incarnata vines.

This has happened several times to me. In NC the Japanese beetles came on the property for the first time in swarms when I planted 3 large river birch trees. Three years later and many systemic sprayings they disappeared and never came back. By morning the next day the deck was covered with hundreds of dead JB's. Same thing with the Brussels sprouts. Giant black aphids came out of nowhere.

So, what are they and why aren't the lizzards, snakes, etc eating them up?

Darn bugs lurk in the ground, bushes and trees saying "oh, lookie -- something new, yum yum".
