Arachnophobes...

...may want to avoid Rowlett, a suburb in Dallas. It's been taken over by giant spider webs.

Not to worry - the web spinners are harmless. More to the point, they like eating midges and gnats, and build communal webs, which can be huge, to collect gluts of food. In other words, leave them alone, they're eating horrible bitey things.

(Which is why I generally leave spiders alone. Anything that eats horrible bitey things is my friend. Unless it's hourglass shaped, of course).
