    We get them almost every year here. They must come north when they're done with you guys.

    they hatch drop to the ground and feed on tree roots for 13 (17) years

    emerge and start the cycle all over.

    there are also yearly versions.

    I haven't seen them down here, but I hope you have a trustee to scrub all the guts off the front of your car.

    Ahhh, the soothing song of the cicadia. What better music to lull one to sleep? Their soft, dulcet tones and melodious harmonizing provide a wonderful backdrop to a peaceful slumber.

    What good are they? Rather tasty when roasted, fun short-term pets for the kids, really great cat toys, and outstanding fishbait.
