Because that's exactly what happened last month on a farmer's field near McBride, about 220 kilometres east of Prince George. For reasons that area scientists don't really understand, millions and millions of tiny black spiders called Halorates ksenius - they have no common name - became trapped in Russell Jervis' clover field and started spinning webs.
