I need a web slinger ID

What is making these webs? Are they herbivores or carnivores?

Should I release my inner Dalek and EXTERMINATE?

They are in the rosemary, too.

Leave them alone- its just carnivore spiders doing their thing. No threat to you or your garden, but if you can't stand the look of them, hold off on the poisons and the flamethrower- i bet you can water hose them away. Min

We have many lizards around, and they would not be here if there was nothing for them to eat. Going on that belief--

It seems to me that if you have that many spiders surviving there, there is a food source for them--insects. They might be doing you a favor. I'd ignore it as long as you can, then a water jet will clean the plants, or just a few.

We have tons of same. I generally ignore them, except on the succulents on the patio, where I remove them with a paintbrush.

Good point on the food source!

Shrubs can do with a hard spray of water every so often during summer. It will wash the dust off as well as the webs and the plant will look better and healthier. Should not take much water.
