Hi, I'm new to the forum. Our mugos had a crazy growth spurt this year. I chalk it up to a cleaner atmosphere but I said if I see Triffids climb out from behind them, I'm outta here. Now I see this gooey white crud draped on them that someone said could be spider webs. I have never seen it before. We did have have a lot of poplar fluff this year, but this can't be that. Its been raining non-stop here for a few weeks and that could be why its gooey. Also, its only on two of the three bushes which I find odd. It isn't on the one closest to the door in the photo. Can anyone help with identification and should I be treating? I have a cat and there are many others in the neighbourhood I wouldn't want to poison.
