Giant spider-web cloaks Greece coast

The blanket of webbing lets Tetragnatha spiders engage in a mating

This giant spider web spans 1,000ft and mysteriously appeared overnight on the tranquil beach.

A soft, white blanket of webbing formed near a lagoon in western Greece, reportedly allowing a massive mating "party" to ensue between spiders in the town of Aitoliko.

"When these temperatures last long enough, we can see a second, third and fourth generation of the gnats and end up with large amounts of their populations", he said, adding that the spiders will multiply en masse if there are enough gnats.

Towns agrees to five-year, $190 million contract with Wolves
In Minnesota, he had issues with Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns and just seems to be a negative influence on guys. Butler is downplaying his fractured relationship with Towns as a reason for wanting a trade , league sources said.


The webs may cover an enormous area, but the spiders that make them are quite small, according to CNN.

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

She said a similar phenomenon was recorded in 2003 and that all it takes is the ideal fall weather conditions for the spiders to thrive.

Although the phenomenon is highly unusual, experts say it is nothing to be anxious since the spiders will soon perish and the web will vanish naturally.

According to arachnologist Maria Chatzaki, they're always from the same type of spider: the Tetragnatha genus, a tiny critter no longer than 2 centimeters, or 0.7 inches.

She went on to explain that these kinds of phenomenon happen every few years.

Machines to do most work by 2025
Many firms may choose to hire temporary workers, freelancers and specialist contractors for tasks not automated by new technology. The report also predicts that advances in machine learning and digital automation will eliminate 75 million jobs by 2025.


Warm weather and a large number of mosquitos are thought to be to blame for the booming population of the arachnids, which have swarmed the island to mate. They frequent regions all over the world, but often stick to habitats near the water.
