I am thinking Cicada-kabobs. I had Chinese neighbors who stir fried them in dandelion greens.

I need them to be crispy. eyes and wings burnt off.

Not to stand in the way of perceived cicada doom, but when these things were "besieging" us here in the northeast 17 years ago, the worse thing about it was the noise, and the noise really wasn't that bad. You get used to it. Seriously, the gypsy moth catipillar onslaught of '82-'87 was much worse than the cicada swarms of the (roughly) the same years. Cicada just buzz.

I think OP's joking. I won't kill anything except in self defense or for food. They can't hurt me and I ain't eatin' em(!)

They're kinda cool. It's nature and it's fascinating. Like the monarch's in California every year, covering the trees in awesome orange then taking flight.

Maybe there won't be so many. At least here in Raleigh, it seems that every little stand of woods is ruthlessly plowed over and turned into a Strip Mall with either a CVS/Walgreens, a cleaners, a Chinese take out joint, a nail saloon and a cell phone store.

All of your Cicada pupae are belong to our strip mall parking lot.

These insects pose absolutely no threat to humans. They've spent 17 years underground and the first thing they will in encounter is a bunch of ignorant, meaningless humans trying to irradicate something they don't understand, as usual. Thanks for the heads up, but please leave the poor creatures alone.

Billions of Brood II cicadas are set to hatch this spring, bringing a once every 17 years plague to most of the East Coast. The deafening insects will mate and then die over the course of about six weeks, making an unmistakable racket the entire time.

But some foodies embrace the insect onslaught, using the high-protein, nutty flavored bugs in all sorts of dishes, from tacos and pizza to cookies and even a martini.

FREE FOOD!

I'm thinking you good folks there in Cicada country should be bagging up as many of these little critters as you can.

Roast them in a roaster like we do green chili's out my way.....let them cool down and them vacuum seal them.

Great protein food for the bug-out-bag or then put them in #10 cans with O2 absorbers for long term storage.

When nature gives..........make meals out of it. LOL
