Q.what kind of bug is on my holly bushes

Zone zone 4 | mountaincrest added on September 9, 2014 | Answered

It is causing the leaves to turn brown and die. The leaves on my holly bushes are covered with spider webs and black “eggs” that have turned the leaves brown and seems to have killed some of the stems.
