"A dispersal event is when spiders balloon out and try to go to a new area and because there was so many thousands putting their web up, they became trapped in the web and can't go anywhere," said Garde. The park says they hope the busy spiders don't go anywhere and just keep itsy bitsying themselves across the trail. Atleast, for a little while longer.
Tawakoni State Park says it's been told entomologists will be out to study the giant spider web. The park also says if you want to see the web it recommends you do so soon as it's age is starting to show.
