In many parts of Victoria, cobwebs have flooded vast areas after flash floods hit the area.
The state recently suffered from severe storms that triggered flooding and forced families to evacuate their homes.
Caterpillars usually stay on their nest even in rain and other storms. Now, however, they had to look for new accommodations as their homes were littered with water from the floods.
Photos of it were shared on Reddit, showing how dense and widespread the cobwebs were.
Although they were like a Horror movie, experts say spiders on the ground can actually do something good for flood-hit areas as they eat mosquitoes and insects that cause other diseases.
A spider guard from the Taronga Zoo told the Sydney Morning Herald, that spiders do no harm in floods.
“The number of mosquitoes in the area would be unbelievable because of all the water. The spiders are no harm. They’re doing us a favor. They’re actually helping us, ”said Brett Finlayson.
Residents of New South Wales, Australia were frightened by a rodent infestation in May. The plague began in March and had a negative impact on the farming community in the area.
The New South Wales government gave them $ 50 million for this. Not only that, but they have given permission to use a fairly banned poison called ‘bromadiolone’ to get rid of this threat.
But that was not the end of their problems – around the same time, several parts of New South Wales, Australia were hit by severe flooding and heavy rains, forcing more than 18,000 people to evacuate their homes.
The floods destroyed the nests and habitats of many small creatures – because of this, tens of thousands of spiders and other insects have been observed trying to get to higher altitudes to save themselves from the floods.
