Greek Beach Completely Covered in Giant Spider Webs

Spider Explosion in Greek Town of Aitoliko Has Coated Everything in a 1,000-Foot Web

1000-foot long spiderweb in Greece

This isn't an ordinary spider web, not even a very large one - it covers green landscape in a think blanket of webbing, giving a creepy wake-like appearance.

The breathtaking scenery of clear blue Mediterranean Sea waters in Aitoliko has been spoiled by a massive spiderweb, which has sprung up next to a lagoon on the shores of the town.

In this frame grab taken from video on September 18, 2018, a view of spider webs over bushes, in Aitoliko, Greece.

According to experts, a seasonal phenomenon, was caused by spiders of tetragnatha, which can create large nests for mating.

While the smartphone world is now moving from dual cameras to tripe cameras, Google is still sticking with the single rear camera. Reports says that the Pixel 3 will sport a 5.5-inch display, while the Pixel 3 XL's display will measure in at 6.2-inches.

Although the phenomenon is highly unusual, experts say it is nothing to be anxious since the spiders will soon perish and the web will vanish naturally.

"The spiders are taking advantage of these conditions, and are having a kind of a party".

Local Giannis Giannakopoulos shared pictures Monday of what he described as a "strange and unprecedented spectacle" on his Facebook page, garnering dozens of shares. Basically, when the conditions are appropriate, these spiders get a chance to overeat and mate.

"When animal finds abundant food, high temperatures and sufficient humidity, it has the ideal conditions to be able to make larger population", she added. "It's the ecosystem's natural reactions and once the temperatures begin to drop and the gnat populations die out, the spider populations will decrease as well".
