It is widely believed that the nature works in mysterious ways, and in every particle of the world there lies a secret of the nature.
This widespread belief is strengthened by an unusual and mysterious act of the spiders that have covered all the trees in several union councils of flood-hit Dadu district, Sindh by knitting long webs.
This mysterious act of the spiders has turned the web-covered trees into a natural barrier against mosquitoes and poisonous insects, for it has barred all these insects from entering the houses of the flood-affected people.
It is to be noted here that among all the difficulties faced by the flood-hit people, who returned to their homes in Dadu district, the biggest was to avoid mosquitoes and poisonous insects.
So, the mysterious hand of the nature came into action, and tiny spiders constructed their webs on the trees at several villages in the union councils of Khairpur Nathan Shah including Gozo, Chhor, Qambar, Dhani, Baksh Baghia and Gadhi.
These web-covered trees became natural mosquito nets for the residents of the area, for when the mosquitoes and other poisonous insects sought a refuge in these trees against strong winds, they got stuck in the webs.
