30 Wild Marlow Days - Day 14

  • Did you know Spiders can 'fly', it's called ballooning. A study published by scientists at the University of Bristol proves that spiders can sense the Earth's electric field and use it to fly through the air. The process allows the arachnids to use strands of silk to float up to three miles above the Earth's surface and 1,000 miles out to sea https://www.bristol.ac.uk/news/2018/july/spiders-electric-fields-.html

    Having a wide variety of bugs in your garden is really important, as they carry out vital jobs as well as being a food source. Why not build a bug hotel, it will count as a wildlife shelter in our Wild Marlow Gardens Campaign.
