Itsy bitsy spider of Pakistan

Many have attributed this incident with Pakistan floods that occurred last year, which is the worst flooding experienced by Pakistan since last 10 years.

In this flood, about 20 million Pakistanis left homeless and, according to data from the Department for International Development, the British government, still leaving the flood inundation area of the UK.

This event itself was unprecedented. However, residents reported that the presence of webs of spiders in the trees has contributed in reducing the number of mosquitoes in the area, whose population became increasingly due to stagnant water.

As quoted from dailymail site, the risk of malaria are also expected to decline because the nets were trapping the mosquitoes malaria milling around the place.

The itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the water spout
Down came the rain
And washed the spider out
Out came the sun
And dried up all the rain
And the itsy-bitsy spider
Climbed up the spout again
