Get ready, they are set to return, and soon! I am talking about that noisy, late spring, summertime pest the cicadas.
Tthe return of the 17-year cicadas will cover areas from Georgia to Connecticut, and the air will hum with their mating buzz. These bugs with their black bodies, striking red eyes, and orange wing veins have a rather unique lifespan. The periodical cicadas returning this year, known as the Magicicada Brood II, have been living underground for the past 17 years.
