The Tetragnathaspiders - known as "stretch spiders" - are known for building enormous webs for mating when it's hot and humid.
Spiders have taken over a seaside town in Greece, as video shows webs coating almost 1,000 feet of the shoreline. The nest, though alarming, is not the first of its kind to occur in the area - a similar large web was last seen in 2003.
BBC News reports that while it may seem horrifying to those with arachnophobia, it is a seasonal occurrence that's caused by the Tetragnatha genus of spiders.
These spiders are not risky to humans and do not harm the flora. Though those with phobias may find the sudden presence frightening, experts say these spiders aren't unsafe to humans and were likely just taking advantage of favorable mating conditions.
The abundant food, high temperatures and sufficient humidity made it ideal for the spiders to exploit and create a large population.
'They mate, they reproduce and provide a whole new generation'.
They are known to build webs near watery habitats, with some species even said to be able to walk on water.
Chatzaki explained that the spiders were not unsafe for humans and would "have their party and soon die off". A Greek scientist said an increase in the bloodsuckers' population this year contributed to the situation.
According to Science Alert, the spiders are likely from the Tetragnatha genus - commonly known as stretch spiders due to their elongated bodies.
