earlier this week I noticed some plants covered in a white substance which would not hose off. Today in the same area there appears to be an infestation of what I don't know but it's a brown writhing mass of insects so small that I can't see what they are. It looks as though its spreading fast. Can anyone identify it and give advice.



Could be baby spiders.

thank you bulbaholic - just looked at area and after spraying with insect repellent all seems "calm".

Very sorry that you felt the need to kill the baby spiders, Ladyp, they are very beneficial garden creatures.
