The return of the Cicadas

Posted: Updated:

They're back!  The 17-year Cicadas means spots from GA to CT will be carpeted in bugs this spring.  Many of you know that mating buzz. Some believe that the particular night of the periodical cicadas' emergence depends on soil temperature.  According to a story posted on NOAA Cicada juveniles, or nymphs, emerge when the soil temperature at 8 inches in depth exceeds approximately 64°F.  This website aims to track these crunchy critters:  http://project.wnyc.org/cicadas/.
