During this period, young spiders throw these threads of spiderwebs up in the air and use them as a parachute to detach themselves from the ground and move in large colonies through the sky.
The spiders will then fly through the sky and people will see the falls of spider webs that look almost as if it’s snowing. So if you are in Australia, do not be confused, It’s not snow, but rather the spider season!
Australia isn’t the only location to witness this type of arachnidian event. The United States has also seen fields covered in spider webs. For example, in November 2015 residents of North Memphis, Tennessee, were shocked to see nearly a half-mile stretch of grass covered in spider webs.
