Answer: Webbing on the leaves and stems of plants is usually associated with Spider Mites and these insects prefer hot, dusty situations so they generally appear in late summer. Examine the undersides of the leaves to see if you can spot the tiny insects. Use a magnifying glass to help you get up close and personal with the pests. If you do find Spider Mites, you can wash them off with a strong stream of water from the hose. Repeat every morning for three days, making sure you direct the stream at all leaf surfaces. Insecticidal soaps work well against Spider Mites, too. Once you eliminate the pests, the plants should recover.
