Get out the bug spray! :)

If you are not a big fan of spiders then I would say that this could be your worst nightmare!

The video that surfaced online shows thousands of spiders in the sky at Santo Antonio da Platina, Brazil.

The user that uploaded the video on the Internet was mystified by the weird event.

“Still do not know what causes such behavior, we are researching and will post the answer to the question here,” he posted along with the video.

However, very soon it was revealed that the insects were so-called “social spiders,” Anelosimus eximius.

These insects or “social spiders” are known to construct massive webs. The number of insects in a single colony may reach  50,000.

So far, the footage has received more than 500,000 hits.
