I post the following story strictly because I know that it will freak out Hossmom. We live in Dallas and she hates spiders although hate may be to polite a word for how she truly feels about them.
"In August, entomologists found a spider web in a state park about 45 miles east of Dallas, covering trees, shrubs and the ground along a 200-yard stretch. The originally white web had turned brownish because "millions" of mosquitoes had been trapped in it. [Dallas Morning News-AP, 8-30-07]"
