A huge spider web stretching 200 yards has covered trees and bushes along a path at a Texas state park.
“At first, it was so white it looked like fairyland,” said park superintendent Donna Garde in an article in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Now it’s filled with so many mosquitoes that it’s turned a little brown. There are times you can literally hear the screech of millions of mosquitoes caught in those webs.”
Experts aren’t sure how and why the web was built. Some think that it was constructed by social cobweb spiders that work together to build webs. Others think it was a mass dispersal when spiders spin webs to get away from each other.
