Spiders envelop trees in giant web along a creek near Jerusalem (video)

This unusual sight was filmed along the Soreq creek near Jerusalem.

Long-jawed spiders spinned huge cobwebs, transforming the creek into a Halloween landscape, glistening in the sunshine.

According to scientists, this giant web phenomenon was triggered by treated sewage full of nutrients that promoted the proliferation of mosquitoes.

The insects are a source of food for spiders, which then reproduce in multitudes covering part of a forest in a giant web.
