    During the floods last year in Pakistan, all the spiders took to the trees. I dunno about you, but I find this really creepy. I've got a touch of arachnophobia anyhow, but this is nightmarish!

    Dang, that's just plumb disgusting!! In SE Kansas, they have something similar but not nearly that bad. And it wasn't spiders, but some other web making insect. It was damaging to the trees, too.

    Yuck, that's all I have to say! :eek:

    There's a place in the Texas Hill Country where spiders do the same thing. Ick! Ick! Ick! I've watched too many old horror movies to enjoy seeing giant spider webs.

    When I was a kid we had a little grove of chokecherrry trees and they'd get infested with tent caterpillars - they do webs, plus they eat the trees. Maybe it was something like that?

    On the NG site they said some of the web covered trees ended up dying, possibly because the webs were so thick that it kept the sun from reaching the trees. That's just crazy! I keep looking at that one pic with the little kid - I don't think anyone could pay me enough to stand under that tree. :eek2:

    EDIT: forgot to mention - they said that with all the webs it actually helped to keep the mosquito population under control - and hence, helped control the spread of diseases! So creepy but helpful I guess. Like lawyers. ;)

    Thanks, Chayton. They were caterpillars and they did try to kill the trees. And the webs would help keep the bugs down, but what an eyesore to look at them. :eek:

    Spiders are :cool:

    When I'm at home (my parents' house), if my 'big' brother sees a little spider he runs away squealing and I have to catch it and remove it. I'm much older than him, but he's about 6' 2", it's so funny watching him cower :lolup:
