Unfortunately, based on your description I am not certain what is affecting your junipers. It might be an insect problem or possibly a fungal or bacterial disease problem. I would suggest you work with your retailer (if these are new plants) and/or with your local county extension to obtain a specific diagnosis. Based on knowing that you can determine how to proceed. If it is something that requires treatment, your c ounty extension will have the most up to date information on what to use and how/when is best to apply it.
