Spiders are 'having a party' in this terrifying 1,000-foot web

Keen to see the ethereal spiderweb in Greece? Here's everything you should do near Aitoliko

Spiders have apparently picked the outskirts of the said town and coated the vast area with their webs.

Local Giannis Giannakopoulos shared pictures Monday of what he described as a "strange and unprecedented spectacle" on his Facebook page, garnering dozens of shares.

Arachnophobics, beware - a massive spider web in a small town in western Greece has blanketed almost a 1,000-foot expanse of the region's coast.

And even on the contrary - increased population of spiders will reduce the number bred on the island of mosquitoes.

BBC News reports that while it may seem horrifying to those with arachnophobia, it is a seasonal occurrence that's caused by the Tetragnatha genus of spiders.

Massive 1,000ft spider web appeared overnight in Greece
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 . A Greek beach has been turned into an arachnophobe's worst nightmare, as spiders have covered it in a web some 300 metres long.

Prior to the announcement on Monday, Musk took to Twitter to show off two new images of the BFR. As things stand, there are no plans to authorise the Falcon Heavy to carry humans in space.

In short, a giant spider-web of 300 meters long and made by Tetagnatha spiders covers an entire shoreline in Aitoliko, Greece, but unfortunately, the magnificent creation won't last long because, as soon as the spiders mate and lay eggs, they will die.

Professor Maria Chatzaki, at the Democritus University of Thrace said, 'It's as if the spiders are taking advantage of these conditions and are having a kind of a party.

"These spiders are not risky for humans and will not cause any damage to the area's flora", she told Greek outlet Newsit.

Now Aitoliko formed the ideal conditions for mating. Their large and thick webs are good not just for mating, but also for both nesting and catching prey.
