They're great weather forecasters.
If you hear them early in the morning, you know its gonna be a hot ass day.

Summer in Oz isn't summer without the buzz of cicadas

They were excruciatingly loud in and around Chicago in 2011.
That was 10 years ago.
 Quoting: HarMegiddo


You are correct, it's only been 10.So this round isn't the big 1. It will be 2027 or 2028.

I don't buy that 17 year BS.

You hear the damn things every August making a heck of a racket.

And every year they tell us the 17 year locusts will emerge this year.

This ^^^^.
They come out every year here and attract copperheads that come out at night to eat them. Last year the cicadas were so loud that I could hear them while inside my house.

The cycle is 17 years but every year the cicadas that were developing for seventeen years are what you hear. It's kind of like a trick question.

I'm with you. I swear it's every year that it's the magic 17th year, errr 10th year... or maybe it's 7 years?

Re: The Cicadas have waited underground for 17 years...
They will appear in June in the Eastern States of America.
How do they hibernate for so long....and why ?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 79176076


Why?
Survival.
Being predictable can get one killed.
Mass emergence with larger prime numbers seems to stay out of sync with other life that adapts to patterns within shorter lifespans, keeping the Cicada above the fray.

Here's what happened during the previous emergence...

There are different species that come out in different intervals. If you lived down south in the wooded ares you wouldnt be saying BS. The fishing goes apeshit when these things come out. Everything gorges on them.
