What do you think this is?
It’s probably not whatever you think it is.
During the 2010 floods in parts of Sindh, Pakistan, this was one side effect. Thousands of spiders climbed up the trees to escape the rising flood waters. Due to the water taking so long to recede, many trees became cocooned in spider webs.
Pretty amazing huh?
"People in this part of Sindh, in south eastern Pakistan, near Karachi, have never seen this phenomenon before, but locals are reporting that there are now fewer mosquitos than they would expect, given the amount of stagnant, standing water that is around.It is thought that the mosquitos are getting caught in the spiders web and reducing the risk of malaria, benefiting local people.”[x]
