Need help identifying insect plauging basil
There are white webs on my basil plants, primarily on the undersides of the leaves, connecting to the stems. These webs contain tiny (ca. 1/16 of an inch long)white larvae/worms. They do not seem to move, but the webs are larger each time I go into my garden. (Every few days)I recently started using a cayenne pepper spray for serpentine leafminers, which are also plauging my basil, but the webs keep growing. If anyone can give me an idea what these pests are, and how best to deal with them (preferably without resorting to chemical insecticides) I would be very grateful. I have searched the web to no avail.
