That which I have feared has come to pass

Everything about this article is absolutely terrifying.
Some excerpts (which made me wet myself):

Entomologists are debating the origin and rarity of a
sprawling spider web that blankets several trees, shrubs and the ground along a 200-yard stretch of trail in a North Texas park.

"Now it [the massive web is] filled with so many mosquitoes that it's turned a little brown. There are times you can literally hear the screech of millions of mosquitoes caught in those webs."

Spider experts say the web may have been constructed by social cobweb
spiders, which work together...

"I've been hearing from entomologists from Ohio, Kansas,
British Columbia — all over the place..."

These spiders are organizing and creating webs that are clearly large enough to catch Quianas and they have been documented in our Canadian backyard. Nature is poised to attack and we are totally screwed.

I can never visit my parents in BC again. Sorry Mom! I will really miss you after the spiders get you!

Here is another pic with people in it for perspective.

Ok, first of all that is really creepy!

Secondly, since that does seem that it fits a Quiana sized model, maybe those spiders in your bathroom, besides being perverts, were doing recon, hoping to lure you in to their web once you left the confines of the US border?

Oh My God!

I live in BC, I'm scared and considering moving.

I think it is safe to say that you are 100% correct.
To prepare for this onslaught I will remember to never follow spiders (even if they have bacon) and never to visit d. prince. Unless she moves, which I think should be encouraged.
