    I’ll go along with the last one. Especially the Amazonian size- of-a-dinner-plate spiders.

    But spiders do fly. All those flying webs this time of year and in the spring have tiny spiders attached.

    When I lived in the upper Klamath Basin, the midges fed armies of spiders. One would walk along in the hills and every so often a tiny spider would fly by and its webline would stick to you. Always interesting to try to get them off because they were sticky. The antenna on the car would get a series of “streamers” of webbing during the spider-flying times of year.

    Ladybug, ladybug fly away home. They do fly but can’t fly during cold weather.

    Right, and the strip accounts for that…but you more often see them sitting around than flying.

    I absolutely agree with the last panel, I’m afraid of what they can do now, they don’t need any extra powers!

    And what in the world does this have to do with BC & friends?

    Some species of ants fly also. the black garden ant, for example, will grow wings for a mating flight, then tear them off afterwards. there are winged termite species too

    Asian Giant Hornets are quite sufficient substitutes for flying spiders.

    I recall reading about a study done back around WWII or just a bit later, where they took a bomber up and opened the bomb bay doors and lowered fine nets. came back with thousands of bugs including spiders sailing along at thousands of feet up.

    As hawgowar pointed out, some spiders do balloon, attached to bits of silk and carried by the wind. A really fascinating read is “Spider Silk” by Leslie Brunetta and Catherine L. Craig
