First picture is an Apple tree, these little black things and white things have been there for a while now. They are in a couple of different trees all fruit types. The second picture is not very good, these bugs have been in this peach tree in and off for at least 2 months. They are usually two of them in top of each other, there black with a kinda rainbow color in there back. third picture is I think another pear tree, a lot of the leaves look like that.

Looks like some type of scale insect. Spray with Neem oil every 5-7 days for 3 weeks.

About the bugs, stink bugs are known to attack various fruit trees. The bugs pictured here remind me of a larval form of stink bug. The photo below was identified to me as a larval form of stink bug...of course there will be variations. Also, it looks like they are reproducing which larva would not do. If you can capture them in a jar and get a better photo, you might be able to get an ID.

You might want to add a teaspoon of dish soap with the neem oil. It helps mix it in the water, and it can kill some of the bugs on contact.
