Yep, unfortunately. (Well, the C shaped ones.)
The other long grub I don't recognize.
Yep, 4 petals is right I think so either an invading flower there or it's something else entirely. Leaves look at bit like a Leucanthemum?
Prunus are pretty bomb-proof as far as trees go so I wouldn't bother treating the roots with anything.
I think it'll be fine but I wouldn't pull any more stems this year to give it the best chance of building the crown up again.
If it has been there a few years it'll recover. If it's a newly planted one it might struggle.
Good point nut.
Might be some kind of Evening primrose but doesn't look quite right. Have a sniff of the flower - Oenothera are fragrant late in the day.
Some are self-pollinating to a degree but crops are much higher with cross-pollination (like many fruit trees and bushes)
It is thought that pulling suckers away from the root rather than cutting them off lessens the likelihood of more suckers appearing. This is standard practice for removing rose suckers.
As Logan said, it's a blueberry.
