    So, you have a spider problem?

    Four-Acre Spider Web May Be The Grossest Thing You'll See This Week

    This report on a four-acre spider web covering a building has made shiver and curl in disgust. You are looking at the Baltimore Wastewater Treatment Plant, where a good chunk of their facility was covered by a web made by an estimated 107 million spiders. That’s 35,176 spiders per cubic metre!

    In fact, the scientists who have documented this extraordinary spider mega city say that’s a very “markedly conservative” estimate. In fact, it was overwhelming even for experts like them:



    "We were unprepared for the sheer scale of the spider population and the extraordinary masses of both three dimensional and sheet-like webbing that blanketed much of the facility’s cavernous interior. Far greater in magnitude than any previously recorded aggregation of orb-weavers, the visual impact of the spectacle was was nothing less than astonishing.
    In places where the plant workers had swept aside the webbing to access equipment, the silk lay piled on the floor in rope-like clumps as thick as a fire hose."

    Typical response and mentality derived from the usual disconnected.

    Arachnids are far more valuable to the environment than those odd and destructive bipedal variety.

    Extermination gods need to get it right.

    Was bitten by a spider on my foot a few weeks ago, at the time the Leo numbed all. The morning was a different matter, though. My foot was swollen for days

    Interesting

    What country was that in?

    Unusual for a spider to crawl over a human body part intending to bite,they would sense you and move away.

    Did you tread on it by chance but not kill it ?
