Numerous spider webs entangled in Carolina Jasmine climbing vines
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.
