Don't mean to bring up yet another spider mite topic, but have noticed my Juniper has an increasing number of spider webs popping up. I can see the very tiny spiders moving about.
I've read plenty of homemade remedies to get rid of these, so dont think I need advice there unless you've got a remedy I just have to use because it works so well.
My forum question is, are these spiders really here because I've not watered the tree enough? That is what I'm reading on some other sites, that they appear because of drought? That true? I'll have little problem getting rid of the spiders, I'm just trying to prevent them now from coming back.
My bonsai is indoors, in a very large window sill, gets a ton of sunlight, but does suck-down a good bit of water. I water it about 5 days a week, but only 2-3 ounces of water a day, basically when I notice the soil is dry. Should I be watering it more?
My juniper is about 14 inches in length. 6 inches straigh up. Then about 8 inches 90-degrees to the right. It looks like a gun almost, if you can imagine that.
