Re: They're back: 17-year cicadas to swarm the East Coast!
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.

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.

I guess this is another batch of Cicadas on a different phase of the 17-year cycle. The cicadas were out all over Washington DC and Maryland in Summer 2004, only 9 years ago.

Two different groups with 2 different phases of the 17 year cycle?

Re: They're back: 17-year cicadas to swarm the East Coast!
When I lived up in the northeast, I heard Cicadas every summer around August.

Always wondered why they called them '17 year' when they come out every year.

I liked those things. They were fun to catch and have as a little pet.

Thanks for the info OP! They are one of my favorite insects, and a artistic inspiration for me.

Wow, all you entomophobics, the cicada wasp and the cicada are harmless to
humans and are very interesting.

Some cicadas produce sounds up to 120 dB (SPL),[15] among the loudest of all insect-produced sounds.[16] This is especially notable as their song is technically loud enough to cause permanent hearing loss in humans, should the cicada sing just outside the listener's ear. Conversely, some small species have songs so high in pitch that the noise is inaudible to humans.[6] Species have different mating songs to ensure they attract the appropriate mate. It can be difficult to determine from which direction(s) a cicada song is coming, because the low pitch carries well and because it may, in fact, be coming from many directions at once, as cicadas in various trees may make noise in unison.

In addition to the mating song, many species also have a distinct distress call, usually a somewhat broken and erratic sound emitted when an individual is seized. A number of species also have a courtship song, which is often a quieter call and is produced after a female has been drawn by the calling song.

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.
 Quoting: Melliserande 37418215


it hasn't been 17 years yet. i was working in baltimore in the early / mid 2000's when they last "hit" us here.

it has not been 17 years! this has to be a fake news story...and surely people don't have memories that short!
