The year 2022 is off to the races, and despite only being three months into the new year, people are already wondering when it’s going to be over.
The latest piece of incredibly bad news, especially for people who hate spiders, comes out of the University of Georgia. The college is reporting that giant, parachuting spiders will effectively “colonize” the east coast during the spring.
Bright yellow and black spiders, which are known as the Joro spider, are likely to spread beyond Georgia, and across the entire east coast according to research conducted by the University.
Unfortunately for our arachnophobic friends, there appears to be very little to do about the spiders.
“People should try to learn to live with them,” he said. “If they’re literally in your way, I can see taking a web down and moving them to the side, but they’re just going to be back next year.”
“The way I see it, there’s no point in excess cruelty where it’s not needed,” added Benjamin Frick, co-author of the study and an undergraduate researcher in the School of Ecology. “You have people with saltwater guns shooting them out of the trees and things like that, and that’s really just unnecessary.”
Luckily, the spiders don’t appear to be dangerous to humans or our pets, which is fantastic news considering it seems like we will be living with them for quite some time.
Twitter, on the other hand, wasn’t so convinced: (** Language warning)
