The spiders have attempted to flee the floodwaters in quite the spooky way.

Looks like Australia is gonna need some bigger flamethrowers...

But since they are Australian spiders, won't they just eat all the mice from the Mouseocalypse? Then at least one of those problems will be solved...

“The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people.”

-Aldous Huxley

It's happened before but not reported on this scale.  I have seen it some years back and from a distance it looks like frost.  The little buggers get very busy for some reason.  Perhaps after the drought, fires, floods etc last 20 months nature has awakened them and the mice.  

I prefer the spiders than the mice.  Furry blighters get into everything.  Can't avoid them but can avoid the spiders.  Orb spiders are out around my block.  Large sticky webs and hand size spiders generally centered.  I've walked into a couple and do a Nikki Lauder getting the crap off me including the web sacked insects.  

Cheers,

Good pics,

Kind regards,

Sounds good to me.  Some examples as follows -

I just don't like walking into the web in the early hours of the morning.

Same with birds,

Not sure of the bird but the web and catch doesn't surprise me.

Kind regards,

Many things will kill you both in Australia and outer space. The main difference is Australia has air and space does not.. No offense to anyone.

I think I've told this yarn on another thread, but since this thread is called 'Spiders', I fear it won't do any harm
to repeat it.

I live in the UK and the largest of spiders that I've come across currently reside in the eaves of my garage.
One of them is called 'Boris' and he's fairly big and would struggle to fit in an average-sized matchbox.

But once when we were on holiday (vacationing -for our American brothers and sisters!) in Texas, I was accidentally
introduced to Boris' big brother.

My wife, son and I were staying in a motel in Houston and sometime in the early evening and for unknown reasons,
my better-half decided to look under the bed. There in the shadows lay Goliath, a hand-sized Arachnid who seemed
to be enjoying the coolness of the air-conditioned room.

Usually when a spider is seen skittering across the floor at home, my wife tends to move quickly and if there's no slipper
at-hand, she'll call for me with a sense of urgency. This time, I believe she realised Goliath demanded more respect.
Casually relating to me that a monster was sharing our room, I rose from reading a brochure for our next-day trip to the
Space Centre and took a look under the bed.

To estimate the size, I'd suggest using the Latin term 'fuckin' massive'... my usual machismo that is displayed as I rescue
my lady from the grips of these eight-legged beasts -I realised, just wouldn't cut it. No grabbing and quickly taking it to the
garden would do, no calm voice to my wife as the spider was sent packing would suffice, Goliath commanded that I fought
him head-on.

'Bring me my shield' are the words from a chivalric hymn and so slowly reaching for a motel-branded towel, I prepared myself
for the battle ahead. I'm at a loss to give the reader a full descriptive literary of what happened next -possibly because nothing
alarming really happened, but suffice to say, the multi-eyed grotesque was wrestled into the cloth and with a focus I reserve
for getting to a pub-counter or the time I actually locked BIAD in his shed, I made haste towards the motel room's door.

With a deft flick of my wrist, Goliath was hurled from my overnight kingdom and dropped unceremoniously onto the concrete
balcony walkway, sweat poured from my body as it occurred to me that I'd just saved my beloved and only child. Goliath seemed
incapable of reading my relief and merely showed his contempt by slowly unfurling his many appendages and walking away.

Somewhere far off and for reasons they'd never truly understand, burly Vikings were toasting my courage and offering their versions
of how to rebuke the the terrors that hide under places of slumber. For me... I went back to finishing my lukewarm bottle of soda
and to ruminate on why the heading on the brochure was spelled 'Center' instead of 'Centre'.

Ninurta would agree, evil never sleeps... it just waits under places you do.

This reminds me of a night time barbecue back when my daughters were teens. We were just grilling some good food and listening to some new music when we started noticing a few spiders. The next thing we knew we were jumping and climbing on top of anything we could as millions, maybe billions of spiders migrated across our yard! You could not even see the grass or even the street as a solid "carpet" of spiders made their way through. I sat on top of a tall stack of lumber for over two hours until the bulk of them had passed. The girls had nightmares for months!

I never saw anything like it before or since but that night will always be ingrained in my brain!

I had an old Dodge which I had taken the engine out of to replace it with a good motor. I sat it in a wooden engine crate, and life was great, Fast forward a year or so. I'm walking past the engine setting right at the woods and looked over that way, the motor looked brown and indistinguishable, just a moving mass of brown. I walked over to it and to my surprise, it was covered with Daddy Longlegs spiders. Literally hundreds of thousands. You could not see the engine, only the now bloated shape of what was an engine. Actually quite a magnificent display of nature.
