To me, they seem large, like 2-3 inches long, bodies can be thicker than your finger. Very noisy, and they seem to shed their skins, leaving all these really gross exoskeletons around. I mostly find those on wood - the deck, wooden yard furniture, etc.I’m not sure what they are?
Brings backs memories of being a kid.... To me, their sound just indicates "SUMMER!" and all the good stuff it brings.
Terrific! Thank you, I was hoping someone would put in a good word.I love them. Find them fascinating. In Chicago we have annual and periodic cicadas. Where I live the annual ones appear around 3rd week of June. Their noise is sooooooo loud that it's often times hard to talk on the phone outside. To me, their sound just indicates "SUMMER!" and all the good stuff it brings.
I have experienced two of the periodic cicada emergences. Really crazy events. Cicadas solidly covering trees, screens, etc. We had a screen porch growing up and I remember the cicadas covering every surface of the porch and freaking out.
Actually, it was that part of the country that "the forecast" was for. I noted NC in the list, as I was planning to head down there in a month or two.I'm not sure if cicadas will arrive this summer in southeast Virginia
Anyone is free to come collect as much bait from my property as they want.They make great bait. Hook them in the middle and let them dance around on top of the water. This really works well for bass, perch and crappie.
Agreed! Those things give me the creeps.My last house had these massive wasp like creatures in the ground. I ended up finding out they were cicada killer wasps. I would sit on my front porch and yep, every now and then I would see one of these wasps with a cicada in tow going down to its hole. I don't mind the cicadas....but those wasps were awful.
What I remember from last time was how much dogs liked eating them
Millions of cicadas are expected to emerge after 17 years underground because, of course, it's 2020.
