Massive 1,000ft spider web appeared overnight in Greece

News  Greece Aitoliko beach in Greece covered in spider web

A spider web spanning almost 1,000ft has appeared in Greece, where locals say unusually high mosquito activity took place before the web appeared.

Although neither the gnats or the spiders are unsafe to humans, CNN predicts getting rid of the webs will require a lot of dusting.

In recent days, the webs have draped plants, trees and boats along the lagoon in Aitoliko, a town of canals that's otherwise known as Greece's "Little Venice".

A Greek beach has been turned into an arachnophobe's worst nightmare, as spiders have covered it in a web some 300 metres long.

Greek local and photographer Giannis Giannakopoulos captured stunning photographs and a video of the webs.

But Thursday, Miranda contradicted her earlier claim, telling NPR , "That it happened or not, I have no idea". Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh leaves his home September 19, 2018 in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

The giant webs are spun by a very small spider of the Tetragnatha genus ― it's just 0.7 inches long, according to Inside Edition. It was likely that abundant food, high temperature and sufficient humidity had provided the ideal conditions for a large number of the spiders to come together to mate.

"The spiders will have their party and will soon die", she told Sky News, adding that the phenomenon takes place every few years.

The spiders' population explosion is owed to the hot, humid temperatures in Aitoliko.

Speaking to Greek news websites, molecular biologist Maria Chatzaki said that the spiders are not risky to humans and she not be feared.

In the interview, Democritus University of Thrace assistant professor Maria Chatzaki said: "The spiders will have their party and die soon". "They mate, they reproduce and provide a whole new generation".
