Pakistani Floods…..Spiders in Trees

An unexpected side-effect of the flooding in parts of Pakistan has been
that millions of spiders climbed up into the trees to escape the rising flood
waters.
 
Because of the scale of the flooding and the fact that the water has taken
so long to recede, many trees have become cocooned in spiders webs.
 
People in this part of Sindh have never seen this phenomenon before but
they also report that there are now far fewer mosquitoes than they would
expect, given the amount of stagnant, standing water that is around.
 
It is thought that the mosquitos are getting caught in the spiders web thus
reducing the risk of malaria, which would be one blessing for the people
of Sindh, facing so many other hardships after the floods.
Alhamdulilah, praise The Creator of the Heavens and the Earth for wisdom
