I would be running off like a little girl just about now! These spiders look large and creepy to say the least. I have no idea what they are or why so many have gathered on these power lines. Does anyone know about this event, is this some nest or what?
I'm actually afraid of spiders, this video is my worst nightmare. Could you imagine being a city worker on these transformers.
I would be like,"take this job and shove it!"

Enjoy!

I'm not a pansy about bugs by any means, but that would freak me out. Check off one more place never to visit.

It's not raining spider at all! They have made a giant wen and that's it. Hate it when someone one here makes up a dynamic header to get attention ! This should be removed ASAP .

If you want to see large spider webs look here

Maybe these spiders usually made their webs in trees but seeing as we cut down so much of the rain forest they have adapted to use power lines..

Just an idea

If you clicked that thinking spiders actually evaporated into clouds and then began to precipitate over Brazil, then I think the problem lies elsewhere.

Spiderlings tend to swarm, when they hatch,, they can even fly high in the sky with their teeny winy webs,
cool critters they are

Thanks in advance for the nightmares I am going to have tonight!

Why did I think pushing play was a good idea?

I understand the ecological role of spiders, but, even so, I still find them terrifying...

Not really raining spiders.


That looked really cool actually. Spiders are really interesting. I'm the type that will just grab up a spider instead of smashing it. Of course the poisonous ones I don't touch.

That did really look wild. It did seem like they had no where to go, so they decided that was the best place to be.

Peace and love

I lived in a suburb outside of Sao Paulo for several years and every year in March and April we used to get these monster spiders that dont look like the pic in the vid, but were uber freaky. The town, Granja Vianna, was far enough away from the urban jungle, that we often got lots of bad critters...snakes, bats, and very big bugs.

These spiders were only about 2-3 inches long, but they would jump towards movement, and had such a hard back that a boot was the safest method of stopping them.

We once found an enormous nest of them just down the road in a guard shack that all of the neighbors agreed to burn down. Hated them.

So not raining, but still a creepy vid from my second home. Thanks for posting.

Peace

I lived in Texas for awile and I know it sounds cliche but the spiders there are freakishly large. I was mowing the lawn one weekend and walked into a web line, it felt like fishing line across my face. When it snaped, part of the web came down on my head with this massive yellow and black spider on it! My wife said she thought I was on fire the way I ran around yard lke a little girl.

You actually expected to see literal spider rain?

Good grief.

Ohhh I love spiders.. all kinds of arachnids and invertebrates.
Excellent thread OP! The website and business I have is related to breeding the boogers. Im mainly doing Poecilotheria's these days... my best breeder is a 8" Gooty Ornamental (P. Metallica) female.
Now if I could just find a bunch of these guys hanging out in webs all over the place... theyre godawful expensive!


P.S. yeah, some folks havent figured out the whole " use the title of the article/youtube regardless of how ridiculous it might be" rule here.
S&F

Not mine, but these are p metallica... some of the most beautiful tarantulas on the planet.. IMO
My previous avatar was a metallica, but I got several u2u from whiners that didnt like it... even a picture of it! LMAO!

Thanks for the videos
