Notes:

Web masses throughout ornamental. Shiny, sticky leaves with tiny white eggs on top. The underside of the leaves have these bugs in every stage of their life. Most concentrated at the ends of the branches, however the web masses are mostly towards the middle and base of the plant. I was thinking spider mites, but the two main species I could find pictures of do not look like this.

    That is exactly what it is! Oh, thank you so much! This also provides confirmation that these very small bushes are, in fact, crape myrtles. I treated them with a simple mixture of water and dish soap, and it seems to have done the trick thus far. Will probably treat again in a couple of days. Thanks again!

    These pest look like some type of aphids. Maybe these are nymphs and adults crapemyrtle aphids (Tinocallis kahawaluokalani). http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/orn/trees/crapemyrtle_aphid.htm
