Spiders blanket lagoon with thick layer of webs

In 2015, a similar event was reported with Tetragnatha spiders in Dallas, Texas where webbing took over a "football-field" length area.

A video of the unique phenomena, featuring the beach at the town of Aitoliko in western Greece, was shared by a camera operator Giannis Giannakopoulos.

A large number of male and female spiders mate under the webs then produce offspring in an ongoing cycle.

Cobwebs cover the beach in Aitoliko Lagoon, Greece.

A video shows the web's thick blanket cloaking trees, bushes and shrubberies near the shore, with a quick shot of two spiders that appear to be mating.

According to local experts, its a seasonal phenomenon caused by Tetrahnatha spiders, which build large nests for mating in during the warmer weather.

Espanyol coach Rubi said he was pleased with his side's display, but was disappointed they left the Bernabeu without a point. With a budget of a little more than 100m euros I risked buying Zidane and we went from 100 to 300, and we could pay the debt.

The spiders' population explosion is owed to the hot, humid temperatures in Aitoliko.

The high temperatures in this area are the ideal conditions for these spiders to breed.

"These spiders are not risky for humans and will not cause any damage to the area's flora", she assures.

"A odd and unprecedented spectacle I saw tonight at Aitoliko", he captioned the photos.

Maria Chatzaki, an arachnologist, said that they're always from the same type of spider in the Tetragnatha genus. They are able to run over water. Chatzaki also added that the spiders usually do the same thing every couple of years, where they turn the whole town into a horrific bacchanalia and die soon afterwards.
