UGH!!! This is NOT good! I guess it’s a reason to stay inside! No word on if they are coming to the Delaware Valley just yet, hopefully they stay South.
Parts of Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina may soon be awash with the sound of cicada calls, with entomologists predict densities of up to 1.5 million insects per acre.
The reason for this sudden cacophony is the emergence of brood IX (9), which will emerge after spending the last 17 years underground as nymphs.
My parents live close to the Poconos and man, the Cicadas are LOUD!
