A man from Arkansas captured the frightening scene of thousands of spiders crawling along a highway.
Zach Riggs, from Jonesboro, Arkansas, was driving along Highway 230, near Bono, Arkansas, when he discovered the nightmare situation, according to Fox News.
Riggs stopped and of course took video's and photo's which he then shared on Facebook on November 6 with the caption: "Does anyone need spiders? & # 39;
While driving on a road, Arkansas man Zach Riggs came spinning thousands for the day that is said to be coupling under thick blankets of spiderwebs. He shared the video and photos online
It is assumed that the spiders that are seen in the nu-viral video and photos, Tetragnatha spiders or "spin spiders". are because of their long body. They are common in tropical climates
In the video Riggs gives viewers and from close up they view the spiders that cover a barricade on the highway construction. At first sight, the plastic sawhorse looks like it is covered with dirt.
Zach Riggs placed the nu-viral images and video of the spiders on Facebook
But on closer inspection, it is clear that the apparent dirt is in fact an astonishing number of arachnids that are thrown together.
Riggs can be seen bravely holding his hand near the spiders, who do not waste time crawling over his palm.
The series of photos that Riggs placed reveals that thick, white cobwebs cover the grass on the side of the road, brushes, metal traffic signs and even spindly trees.
It is believed that the spiders seen in the nu-viral video and photos are Tetragnatha spiders. The so-called & # 39; stretch spiders & # 39; have long bodies and are common in tropical climates.
AccuWeather stated that the area at Bono has been very humid due to recent storms and that some spider species are attracted to these conditions.
The spiders were so numerous that in some places they looked like a lot of dirt
The cobwebs could be seen as shrubs at the edge of the road
The cobwebs also covered nearby signposts and trees. The spiders are not dangerous to humans and do not have a negative influence on the flora
However, this is not the first time that such a frightening scene has noticed a passerby.
In September, a man in Aitoliko, Greece, shared similar images online, with an almost 1,000 feet of cobweb covering a local beach that had been established as a sort of "mating party."
Democritus University of Thrace biology professor Maria Chatzaki said that & # 39; It is as if the spiders use these conditions and have some sort of party & # 39 ;, according to a translation by the BBC. & # 39; They mate, reproduce and provide a whole new generation. & # 39;
After crossing the membranes, said Chatzaki, the spiders died.
Tetragnatha spiders are not considered dangerous to humans and do not cause damage to the nearby flora.
