Japanese Acer has what looks like Blackfly crawling and sucking on the new shoots. The leaves have drooped and are starting to curl. I have sprayed with insecticide twice now and seem to have control (they are no longer moving and some blackfly have already dropped off). Is it likely the leaves will recover or are they now going to drop off



Some will drop off, but it is still early enough for new leaves to grow, though they may be a little smaller than the first growth--bonsai artists rely on that effect, to bring the foliage into proportion with the size of the tree.
