  • Spiders blanket lagoon with thick layer of webs

"They fly through the sky and then we see these falls of spider webs that look nearly as if it's snowing".

High temperatures have sparked a sexual frenzy among the spiders, causing them to build a vast network of webs alongside the lagoon in Greece.

A stretch of about 984 feet of spider web has blanketed land along the shores of Aitoliko, a town in western Greece. Experts said that the scene was created by a type of spider that feeds on the mosquito population in the area. The spiders will "party" and die out soon. It was all spun by arachnids known as "stretch spiders".

With the growth of the gnat population, the spiders also thrive and multiply.

As the giant web started scaring local residents, Maria Chatzaki, professor of molecular biology and genetics at the Democritus University of Thrace revealed that these spiders are not risky for humans, and it will not cause any damage to the flora in the area.

"These spiders are not risky for humans and will not cause any damage to the area's flora", she told Greek outlet Newsit. They thrive in hot, humid temperatures and continue to reproduce during that time.

But the spiders' romps will be short-lived, according to British media reports which quoted an interview done by Greek website Newsit.gr. Basically, when the conditions are appropriate, these spiders get a chance to overeat and mate.

Molecular biologist Maria Chatzaki told Greek news websites Newsit that the spiders were not risky and that their expansive web will not cause any damage to vegetation.
