Bugs on Plum Tree

I have so many bugs on my plum (prune) tree I never saw before. And a lot of them! Is it plum curculio or something else? I tried to search Internet but not sure what to do.
Thank you.

Keep that one! It's a ladybug.

Thank you! I would never guess that it's ladybug. Not red and no black dots.

It's an immature stage.

E plums are aphid magnets here. If you spray the aphids you don't establish lady bugs and have to keep spraying.
