|I have recently planted a row of leyland cypress and notice that a number of spiders have begun to build webs inside the shrubs and across the row. Can these spiders harm the cypress? Is there something I can do to make these shrubs inhospital for the spiders?
Thank you for your assistance.
|Spiders like to live in dry places. You can discourage them by periodically hosing off your cypresses, directing the stream of water towards the insides of the plants. In general, spiders prey on other insects and won't harm your evergreens, but they can be frightening to encounter. I'd just hose off the plants to encourage the spiders to find homes elsewhere!|
