I hope they devour all agriculture fields in Amurica and a massive famine begins.

Had one on my porch last night but didn't start singing.

@iggz: They'd better get busy, cuz Oct. 21st will be here before you know it!

I haven't seen any in Cincinnati, but we're not due for the 17 year locusts again until 2021.

Everytime the door opened at Walgreens, some flew in and a group of girls screamed. It's going to be a long June!

@w00tgurl: Yep, at least until October 22nd.

Fortunately, we don't have the little monsters down here in Florida. Probably an evolutionary survival thing, since I suspect the state's 40-pound palmetto bugs would wipe the circadas out in a single season.

Surprisingly quiet in Michigan right now.

They're so loud in the bayou country, you can walk a gravel road and not hear your own footsteps.

None here yet but we get this bad boy every once and a while.

Don't you just want to pet him?

@magic cave: I live in Florida also - west coast - and we have them, or what people tell me that's what makes the crickety noises. Have not heard many this year.

Meat group!

They show up in NoFL too. Fortunately, right now it's just normal "KatyDid Ops" outside along with the sounds of lawn mowers, sprinklers and neighborhood kids having fun in their pools.

Not bad at all in Maryland, at least not in the northeastern portion.

They are crappy, but I don't hear them yet.

The shells on the trees was kinda entertaining as a kid, though.

They are fine, and they asked about you too.

I live in the land of Biblical plagues...we have Cicadas, Palmetto bugs, Scorpions, Taratulas, Texas red wasps and even Cicada Killer wasps << google those if you want to have nightmares. So far this year the drought is so bad even the June bugs are hardly showing up. I miss the Cicadas and Tree Frogs singing at night. :-(

@jimeezlady: We have cicada killers, too. Fearsome looking, but the males don't sting at all and the females only if you run into them or step on them.

Tons in Tennessee. They don't bother me too much, but both of my coworkers are about to buy flamethrowers.

There are some around here, but the bees/wasps/hornets are the ones that are bothering me.

A wasp even flew in the car with me. Driving away, I hit or saw about 10 of them. And this was in the local Wal-Mart parking lot.

I am in Missouri, too, and they are absolutely impossible to ignore! I'm in the Ozark Forest and I can hear them indoors with every door and window shut and the air conditioning on. I can't imagine what it was like during the plague in Egypt when Moses asked Pharoah to let the Isrealites go!

@caffeine_dude: I beleive that is a cicada pre tranformation stage? If not, it looks a lot like one of the husks they leave on trees.

I live in Kansas City, and haven't seen or heard a single cicada yet. We typically don't see them until late July/August, I find it odd they're already emerging. Is this just beacause of the big brood?

vote-for0vote-against

We live in K.C., MO and the noise from the cicadas this year is deafening! Don't know if this is "Brood 13 or 17" but seems as though we had them just as bad 2-3 years ago. I'll be happy when they disappear!
