"Experts are warning local residents to be on the look out for noisy neighbors. They are being described as being 1 1/2in long, with stout black bodies, long membranous wings and reddish eyes and legs... The peridoical cicadas are expected to make appearence in the northwest part of the state after waiting 13 years beneath the soil... The nymphs or juveniles, live underground near the roots of trees, sipping on plant juices... as many as 20,000 to 40,000 cicadas may emerge under one big tree..."
I was wondering if I have anything to fear about with my banana plants? They also were saying in a side diagram about how they around 100 decibeles loud.

I used to LIKE listening to cicadas before I got an annoying case of tinnitus, now it sounds like I have some stuck inside my head!

Well I found One half alive in the grass, everything below its wing joints was eaten or chopped off. I didnt even think to take a picture of it, I just threw it in the woods. It looked just like the one in the pictures, with the red eyes and the red tinted body. I thought I herd one or two in the woods a few nights ago, but there isnt a big swarm or anything like that yet.

God forbid if anyone has a swarm of them nearby. About 10 yrs ago, there was ONE in a tree in front of house. The cicada was close to my neighbors bdroom window. As soon as it got dark out, it would screach, LOUD & high pitched, stopping only for about 1 second & kept doing this till dawn. We didn't know what it was but figured it was a animal. He got a rifle out & shot up in tree LOL. Next day I called humane society & they told me it wqas a bug. The noise is their mating call & when they get laid, they'll stop screatching. Apparently there were no others around so this thing screeched for at least a month or longer.

Cicada are actually one fo teh few sounds that i actually can fall asleep too. Otherwise it has to be dead silent. The good thing is when you hear the cicadas you know warm temps are here.

I once got white noise (cassette) and it worked a treat, its all different now though.

This would be great for babies for settling them down.

The back end of our yard is all tall tulip poplars, and the cicadas always are buried around them. When they're out, it sounds like the trees could take off. I rather like it, however, especially as I now know they stop once their lust is satisfied. I'm rooting for them.

I was in the St. Loius area the last time they appeared and there was an overlap of two different populations emerging at once and the sound was deafening (they could be heard over Interstate traffic) and the numbers were amazing. Once they started dying off there were piles of them like a foot deep underneath trees.
