Australia: Spiderwebs Galore!
Millions of spiders were forced to higher ground by floods and took up residence at a park in Yinnar, in the Gippsland region of central Victoria, Australia. The area received a heavier than usual downpour and the spiders reacted by going on the move and relocating (Mail.)
It might look like a set from a horror film, but this is real life. The phenomenon is known as ballooning. For reasons that are not entirely clear, the spiders in question crawl to the highest point they can find, release strands of silk, then launch themselves into the air.
They’re all different varieties of spiders and the good news is they’re harmless to people and to plants. “They’re going to be feeding on the bad insects that we don’t want. These are the good guys.” Unless you suffer with arachnophobia, a terrifying fear of spiders
