Submitted by: SaintPatty 5 years ago in Science

Apparently, last year"s floods in Pakistan forced millions of spiders into these trees, creating these creepy webs.

those are tent caterpillars, they cocoon the whole tree, and they are found everywhere.

That`s just asking for a Terry Gilliam style GIF, if only I had the skills.

Processionary Moth larvae infestation. These are a notifiable pest in UK. They can strip the foliage from an entire oak tree in a few days.

Spiders are actually good for the environment. Smaller bugs, such as roaches and other common insects are prey for these creatures. I do not care for spiders, but they benefit much more than they hinder.

@chicagojay - that was my first reaction too. Had a tree outside my house that looked close to this when I was a kid and the landlord had to pay a fortune to get them removed.

It`s interesting that I see posts I made appear weeks later submitted by someone else. Not bothered about it, but the submission process seems rather hit and miss.
