Massive Texas Spider Web

 

Entomologists are debating the origin and rarity of a massive spider web that covers several trees, shrubs and ground cover along a 200 yard stretch of trail at the Lake Tawakoni State Park.

The superintendent of the park, Donna Garde, said "At first, it was so white it looked like fairyland. Now it's filled with so many mosquitoes it's turned a little brown...you can hear the screech of millions of mosquitoes caught in those webs."

Officials at the park say the massive mosquito trap is a big attraction for some visitors, and others won't go near it.

  Wow...  
 
Reminds me of how I help my parents decorate their woods for Halloween. Every year we put out huge fake spider webs... and every year we end up with a lot of real spiders in them when we go to take them down.

  massive spider web  
 
personally i love spider... i'm but not a fan of them crawling on me.

spider web are absolutely amazing... so long at they're not in your house... i have spiders in my house, especially in the basement, as long at they don't get too close to me i let them live, or even put them back outside, caught nice big red one yesterday, kept it for 24 hours and put it outside after that...

i'd like to see a web network like this in person.

  I have something of a peace accord  
 
With spiders.

If they stay in certain areas, behind the TV, behind the PC ect, I shine a lamp onto the wall/web and lots of insect head for them.

  We need more spiders  
 
and less pesticide. I try to buy organics whenever I can because of this.

There are so many species of spider it can be difficult to tell them apart and which ones are poisonous. That's the only reason I don't like them around, if I can't identify them. Otherwise I'll put them outside.

Mosquitoes and flies are species I think we could all live without. I hope for their extinction but I doubt it will ever happen. Maybe someone will invent a way to alter their genes to limit their ability to reproduce, like gradually make them sterile.
