Spiders are 'having a party' in this terrifying 1,000-foot web

See the massive spider webs in the video player above.

The webs are filled with Tetragnatha spiders - known as "stretch spiders" for their long bodies.

Tetragnatha spiders are not exclusive to Aitoliko, Greece.

Giannis Giannakopoulos saw the "veil of webs" this week in Aitoliko, CNN reported.

The phenomenon is rare, although the webs have appeared before in other parts of the country. When that happens, the spider population will decrease as well. The warmer weather around the area has helped create ideal conditions for the spiders to come out and build giant cobwebs strung on the local flora. Greek biologist Fotis Pergantis, president of the Messolonghi National Lagoon Park, told CNN that the webs will likely be there until temperatures start to drop and the gnat population dies out.

Firmino the hero as Liverpool sink PSG, go top of Group C
Last night, Liverpool and PSG produced an wonderful game to remind all of us why we miss Europe's foremost club competition. It may even make Klopp think twice about certain selections, although you'd imagine Firmino is still the gun favorite.

"When these temperatures last long enough, we can see a second, third and fourth generation of the gnats and end up with large amounts of their populations", he said.

Although the event takes place every three to five years, an increase in the mosquito population - a staple in the spiders' diets - combined with this summer's hot and humid conditions are believed to have contributed to the extraordinary size of the 2018 webs.

In the interview, Democritus University of Thrace assistant professor Maria Chatzaki said: "The spiders will have their party and die soon".

"There are huge numbers of male and female spiders mating [underneath the webs]", Chatzaki said. But Aitoliko residents will need to do a lot of dusting.
