Science Friday post: spiders are your friends
Imagine a spider web the size of a football field. Or several, built by millions of spiders in Texas.
“At first, it was so white it looked like fairyland,” said Donna Garde, superintendent at the park that is located about 45 miles east of Dallas. “Now it’s filled with so many mosquitoes that it’s turned a little brown. There are times you can literally hear the screech of millions of mosquitoes caught in those webs.”
Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!!! Millions of mosquitoes dying a horrible death. I always treat spiders with respect, because I generally prefer the company of the spider to that of whatever it eats. But damn, that’s a lot of eight-legged freaks…
