Virginia Creepers Leaves Are Dying

My Virginia creepers leaves are dying as soon as they unfold. The plant was healthy last year. The leaves sprout and then shrivel and turn brown. Please can you help?

Do you see any signs of insects, bugs or disease.
Leaf Hoppers, Scale and Japanese Beetles can do damage to Virginia Creeper.

You can treat the vines with Neem OIl.
You also can trim back any dead vines.

On further investigation, there are dry crumbly lesions in the bark of the twigs. I have sent 6 photos of the plant to questions@gardeningknowhow.com as I could find a facility to post them on this forum. Thank you all.

Hello downtoearthdigs, thank you for your reply. I have looked at the plant and there are no obvious signs of infestation. That said, I will invest in a bottle of Neem Oil as you suggest. Is it safe to trim back the vines at this time of year? Thanks again. Dave.
