arachnophobia

Parachuting spiders making their way north

Here come the parachuting spiders!

Remember the murder hornets? The evildoers we feared would come in an almost Biblical tandem with a worldwide pandemic that, at the time, had just begun. Mercifully, though, science seems to have kept those nasty bugs in check – at least for now.

Say hello, then, to the Japanese Joro spider, an arachnid the University of Georgia said two weeks ago is expected to “colonize” the entire East Coast this spring “by parachuting down from the sky.”

Parachuting spiders? What possibly could go wrong?
