This happened at Laje Tawakoni in NE Texas some years ago. Several species of spider worked together to weave blankets over everything. Everything was covered and spanned by spiders silk.

Early on, park rangers noted that the sound of snared mosquitos could be heard. Over several days, the sound lessened while the color of the webs changed from clean silk to mosquito brown.

Look it up. It's both amazing and terrifying.

If my son were to simply see that he might die. He's very Arachnophobic.

Expect to see more of these wierd population explosions of insects, arachnids, rodents,  and lizards in bizarre places as climate changes and pollution continue to affect the world around us

Thought you'd save yourself by misspelling it, to give yourself a loophole, huh?

Too bad for you Candlejack has autocorrect.

Aw, fu--

Thank you, for reminding me that my current fascination with arachnids is a result of my own efforts to study them, thereby lessening my fear.

'Cause spiders are scary efficient at what the do. Even if that includes living in your home, for months on end, despite your best efforts to evict it. But it never crosses the line and bites you; you never end up squishing it and it survives another year...

Yep.  Theyr'e not dumb.  They recognize and store patterns and behave accordingly, at very least.  They are smart, and more aware than we realize.  If a spider is ever in your way, it's the spider's fault, he or she is young.   That, or you are in their way.

You cannot tear ass on the trails at night on a four wheeler without accepting the creativity of an orb weaver all up in your face once or twice.  What is during the day changes for the night.  ;)

Or they're looking for a mate. That's usually why you find them out in about in the open.

Just because I'm not wearing pants, and when I squat down my ass-pucker looks like an octopus about to eat doesn't mean I want to mate with other eight-legged creatures.

Abdomen like woah.  If that's even the right part.  I have now a new neurosis, wondering not only about spiders, but if they are horny.

Can knit silk panties using own silk and can hang upside down from the ceiling, vs...um, what is it that you do again? I think you have nothing to worry about.

I have a 4-foot fiberglass rod attached vertically to the grill of my four-wheeler. It catches all the spiderwebs. In a pinch you can use a slender tree branch and zip ties or some paracord.

while you're awake; you never end up squishing it and it survives another year unless you swallow it while it crawls all over you in your sleep...

Spiders are icky, but anything that kills mosquitoes en mass gets a pass and a thumbs-up in my book.
