Late summer is the season of the cicada here in the midwest.

Here’s an interesting link with several short clips documenting the lives of these noisy little buggers.

    I am so glad I live in Texas. We do get shitloads of crickets sometimes but cicadas are just way too nasty

    cicadas live in cycles… I think they hibernate every 15 years or so… I remember growing up and not hearing any, then out of the blue, the news started saying “the cicadas are back!” and I was like “what the hell is a cicada?” Now i’ve learned to live with them.  My cat hunts them and eats them shortly after batting them across the sidewalk.

    oy vey! my friend used to live in Ohio where they would get cicadas, he said everywhere you step, you see them. I could not live there. I just couldn’t!

    Nah, Cicadas are harmless.  I can’t sleep if I don’t hear ‘em.  I’ll take ‘em over locust any day, and besides they provide my cat (and via proxy me) hours of entertainment.

    it’s so funny to watch a cat try and eat one.
