[VIDEO] TO HELL WITH THAT! Baby Spiders Are Falling From The Sky In Australia

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, “millions of baby spiders” have been spotted “raining from the sky” in Australia.

A resident of Goulburn, Australia woke one morning to discover his home and field were covered in a ghostly sheet of cobwebs, with what appeared to be scores baby arachnids falling from the sky.

“I’m 10 minutes out of town and you can clearly see hundreds of little spiders floating along with their webs and my home is covered in them,” Ian Watson said on Facebook. “Someone call a scientist!”


Residents complained that they couldn’t go outside without stepping on the webs, or getting spiders in their hair. Which is a big fat NOPE.

It turns out the freakish “spider rain” wasn’t a sign of the apocalypse, but rather a type of hitchhiking invented by Mother Nature.

The behavior, known as ‘ballooning’ or ‘kiting,’ is how baby spiders find a new home after hatching (remember the end of Charlotte’s Web?!). First they unleash a thread of silk from their abdomen. When it gets long enough, the thread catches a breeze and spiders are effortlessly transported to a new location.

“They can literally travel for kilometres … which is why every continent has spiders. Even in Antarctica they regularly turn up but just die. … You can have entire fields and paddocks and trees festooned with this gossamer or Angel Hair, as some people call it,” naturalist Martyn Robinson explained to the Herald.

 Australia’s recent “spider storm” only lasted for about 30 minutes, but the video above shows a similar event happening in Texas.
