  • In pictures: Eerie spiderweb covers entire shoreline in Greece

The webs cover palm trees and plants in an area at least 300 metres long, the Daily Hellas reports.

Those who happen to find themselves wondering along the shores of Aitoliko and western Greece this September are set to witness an eerie spectacle.

Locals said the sudden rise in spiders had come with the arrival of mosquitoes in the town.

Duchess Meghan Markle Brings Her Mom Doria Ragland to Cookbook Launch
The pair were out and about with Meghan's mom Doria Ragland to promote the release of the Duchess's new cookbook. ITV's royal editor Chris Ship was at the event and said the Doria introduced herself by saying: "I'm Meg's mum".

The web was created by Tetragnatha spiders, a type of spider that falls in the long-jawed orb weaver classification. She explained that the seasonal phenomena occurs when the spiders are mating, and that an increase in the mosquito population this year had lead to flawless conditions for a population explosion among the spiders.

Fortunately, the spiders shouldn't cause any permanent damage to the area's plants. "The spiders will have their party and will soon die", she concluded.

Thankfully, the webs won't be around to menace the people of Aitoliko forever, according to Maria Chatzaki, a professor of molecular biology and genetics at Democritus University in Thrace, Greece. "They mate, they reproduce and provide a whole new generation", Chatzaki told the Greek news site, according to a translation from the BBC. She has worked as a senior manager in public relations and communications for major telecommunication companies, and is the former Deputy Director for Media Relations with the Modern Coalition.
