Annabelle Hydrangeas providing new home to bugs?

We have a number of Annabelles on our property and over the past five years we have never had a problem with any of the plants.

This spring at the end of some of the stems, the leaves are wilted and are folded over to form a pocket/pod. When you gently open the pod, it looks like spider webs with small black dots placed among the webs. Some of the pods have a small green worm in them.

I have photos that I can email.

Does anyone know what has happened and how I should intervene?

Leafrollers. Rarely a problem to a plant's health.
