Yes, you know it’s slow in my blogging world when I start
blogging about insects!
Last night when we walked the dogs, the cicadas were incredibly
Click on the video to hear them….
Wow! This is one of the “sounds of summer” that I just love!
Well, I got to wondering if there were cicadas all over the US or just in certain
areas. From what I can tell, they are all over…….
however, this is the year of the periodical cicadas……you know, the cicadas who
read magazines…..just joking.
No really, these cicadas are in the areas highlighted on the map above and these
cicadas only appear every 13-17 years. Numbers range from tens of thousands to more than one million per acre.
Perhaps that is why they are so loud!
Loud and melodic…..love their music….not so fond of their looks!
A bit more of their music…..I won’t be posting pictures, as pictures of bugs just
freak me out!
