  • A lagoon in western Greece is covered in a 1,000-foot spider web as mating season hits the island of Aitoliko

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

The white blanket sprung up in Aitoliko, a city in western Greece. After all, these types of spiders are known to build very big nests for their mating season.

Local man Giannis Giannakopoulos shared images of a "huge veil" of spider webs - saying that the spiders seemed to be catching and eating a lot of mosquitoes.

Scientists say the arachnids are merely enjoying the lovely weather and availability of food, taking the opportunity to "party".

Maria Chatzaki, professor of molecular biology and genetics at Democritus University of Thrace, Greece said high temperatures, sufficient humidity and food created the ideal conditions for the species to reproduce in large numbers.

These spiders are not unsafe for humans and will not cause any damage to the area's flora. Basically, when the conditions are appropriate, these spiders get a chance to overeat and mate. They are often known as stretch spiders, as they have elongated bodies - and in another worrying development for those who fear spiders - Tetragnatha extensa are small enough and light enough to be able to run across water faster than they can move on land. Plus, they probably won't stick around too long. "The spiders will have their party and will soon die".
