HELP, I have spider webs all over my juniper and arborvitae. I have looked up spider mites and they don't seem to match the description. I have tried chemicals but they seeem to stress the plants. Have heard of insecticidal soap and borax combination, anyone know the recipe or maybe know what is wrong in my yard! They are increasing year by year.

Spiders are actually very benificial insects, that keep harmful insects in check. If the webs become unsightly, just use a broom and sweep them away from the front of the plant, and let them be on the back and inside.
