Cidada time...

It's cicada time again! Are you old enough to remember the last batch back in 1987?
There are at least 13 broods of 17-year cicadas ... This year, it's time for Brood X, the so-called "Big Brood," to surface. Its range stretches from Georgia, west through Tennessee and to isolated pockets of Missouri, north along the Ohio Valley and into Michigan, and east into New Jersey and New York.

"This is one of those years we kind of dread," said Paris Lambdin, professor of entomology and plant pathology at the University of Tennessee. "We had an emergence a couple years ago around Nashville, but nothing like what we expect this one will be."

And with hundreds of them per acre in infested areas, the noise will be hard to miss.
