To escape the rising flood waters caused by relentless monsoon rains, millions of spiders took refuge in nearby trees and turned them into giant mosquito nets.


Local residents reported a steep decline in the average amount of mosquitos in the area, which is odd since they were surrounded by standing water for months (standing water is ideal for mosquito reproduction).

This decline has been at least partly attributed to these large, cotton candy looking trees and the tiny predators cocooned within them.
