Spider Webs Engulf a Building

Since you appear to be happy and carefree at the moment, allow me to show you something that will invade your dreams and keep you awake at night.  What you’re looking at is a four-acre spider web inside of the Baltimore Wastewater Treatment Plant in 2014 that was made by approximately 107 million spiders.

A conservative estimate placed the infestation in the building at 35,176 spiders per cubic meter. 

The spiders were identified as orb weavers.  Spiders will often build large webs around water to capture insects that the water attracts.

The photographer claims that in some places, the webs were as thick and heavy as fire hoses.

In other news, Baltimore shall now be renamed Fuckthatistan and the building will be renamed The Nevergoingthere Water Treatment Plant.
