The Webs of Wagga Wagga

Despite the mass evacuation of residents due to flood waters in Wagga Wagga NSW, the local spiders have held their ground.

And it's a good thing too.

These spiders are keeping mosquitos and other insects in check with fantastic webs weaving across large pockets of Wagga Wagga.

The spider population has exploded not only due to the abundance of water-borne insects but also due to the rains making the spider webs stickier, trapping prey easily.

But we humans, need not worry - the spiders are reportedly harmless and it is expected the population will return to normal during the dry summer season.
