“There is no silver lining.” Once again, these words were confirmed in practice. Since the invasion of spiders in Pakistan, where the population is still struggling with the effects of many months of last year’s floods, suddenly had a positive impact. In the country, much of which was flooded, reduced the level of malaria – a deadly disease carried by mosquitoes.They were destroyed by the spiders.
Surreal – wrapped in a cocoon of web trees in the Pakistani province of Sindh.
Sprawling across several months of flooding in Pakistan – the most disastrous in the past 80 years – has affected millions of lives and caused prolonged flooding much of the country.
Fleeing the long decaying flood millions of spiders climbed the few trees in the area of Pakistan’s Sindh province.
As a result, crown, covered thick cobwebs, was like a giant cocoon.
This effect is explained by the fact that spiders have been forced to stay on the trees for a long period, until the water subsides.
People in this part of Sindh province had never seen such a phenomenon.
Invasion of spiders, of course, disastrous for the trees.
But there is a positive thing: despite the fact that in some places the water level still does not fall sharply decreased the population of mosquitoes.
As a result, fewer cases of malaria , because mosquitoes carry this deadly disease.
