Default Boring insect

Hi all. I just found some damage from a boring bug. The affected plant is Chinook and only one of the vines was damaged. From the entry point upward, the whole vine is shriveled and below is fine. As you can see, they throw out pretty long sidearms. Quite a few years ago I had a very similar problem and after 4 years of detective work found it to be European Corn Borer. This may or may not be the problem as we have no suspects at this time.

The long rectangular bore looks like cicada damage.

That could have given whatever got inside the vine an easy entry point but the entire pith between nodes was tunneled out. Real similar to what happened in the past. I'll keep an eye out.

Also have some bugs im curious about.

I live near a wetland/marsh area across the street so there's a whole host of bugs...but these always seem to be around my garden.
