Q.Numerous spider webs entangled in Carolina Jasmine climbing vines

Zone Los, Angeles, CA 90062 | Anonymous added on July 21, 2019 | Answered

We have large expanses of Carolina Jasmine growing on trellises and they look healthy; however there are numerous spider webs entangled in the vines and trellises.

Are the spiders advantageous to the control of other harmful bugs, or should I be removing the spider’ webs as I find them. The webs do not look ‘pretty’ but I am OK with leaving them if they are a good thing or at least not detrimental to the Carolina Jasmine.

By the way the plants are in Los Angeles, CA.

Thank you – Russell Cooke.
