    What can be more repulsive than myriads of flies swarming in the sky? Even just thinking about it can fill a person with disgust. So how can we prevent such a biblical catastrophe? By putting thousands of their natural enemies everywhere, of course!

    A video from Espirito Santo do Dourado in Brazil shows countless spiders that have woven their webs up high in the canopy between trees. But there is no need to worry — the species, known as parawixia bistriata is harmless for people. But the sight definitely looks terrifying!
