November 3, 2011 Web Trees



Quote:
When Pakistan experienced severe flooding last year, it had the unexpected and rather creepy-crawly side effect of driving millions upon millions of spiders to the trees, where they could escape the floodwater. Since the flooding lasted for such a long time, many trees became blanketed in thick layers of web.

But according to the UK government, which assisted in the flood release effort this may have actually had a positive health effect: On-the-ground reports suggest that there are fewer mosquitos than would have been expected after the influx of so much stagnant water. This, in turn, may have reduced the very real risk of malaria to local populations afflicted with flooding. The web-coated trees, however, remain scary-looking.

I would have thought that those were caterpillar webs, not spider webs.

That's even more embarrassing if you're a guy.

Man we've had some seriously Halloweeny pics. Snakes, spiders, creepy stones...

You all have fabulous memories. Amazing.

Well, I won't feel too egg-on-the-face-ish until I repost one of my own!

Maybe in times of crisis they band together and work cooperatively for the good of all.

Now that you mention it, it is pretty amazing that there are all these spiders co-existing in these trees. There certainly cannot be enough flies flying around for all of them to eat. I wonder what is sustaining them?


classicman  Saturday Nov 5 12:56 PM

Where else are the flies gonna land?
