Creepy Bugs Eating My Juniper!
To my horror I found dozens of small black bugs eating away at my skyrocket juniper! I don't think they're mites because they're larger in size. They look like tiny spiders and they've imbedded themselves within the juniper. Some sections have dried up and fallen off. I've been picking them off by hand and have sprayed soapy water with pepper but they keep coming back. It's a little skyrocket in a pot I had purchased recently that I've been keeping indoors with the intention to plant it outside in the spring. Does anyone have any idea what they may be and how I can kill them once and for all? I'm afraid that if they're not completeley exterminated they'll infest my outdoor junipers. Thanks in advance!
