Periodical cicadas actually.  But it reminds of the 8th plague on Egypt !


Brood X will arrive in the Spring.  An area of approximately 15 mid-western states will be host to TRILLIONS of these creatures.


What else can we look forward to :facepalmpo2:in 2021?

Is there a source? link? news story to accompany this statement?  By linking to a story then all of us can have an informed conversation.

They're big. They're incredibly loud. And they're coming by the billions. 

Meet Magicicada cassinii, better known as the cicada. Every year, a relatively small number of these insects emerge from the ground in the eastern United States. But once every 17 years, a truly massive brood of cicadas arrives in the mid-Atlantic and Midwest, filling the air with a deafening mating hum that can reach up to 100 decibels. 


That phenomenon is named Brood X, or the Great Eastern Brood. It's set to return in May 2021. For the five to six weeks that they're above ground, the live cicadas — and their crunchy, discarded exoskeletons — will be impossible to miss.


What is Brood X, anyway? 

Scientists group cicadas based on the year they emerge as adults after spending years developing underground. Brood X is the name for the big generation of cicadas due in the spring of 2021, just as in 2004 and 1987. 

Theoretically, there should be 17 different generations of 17-year cicada, each linked to a different geographic zone and a different emergence year. For example, Brood IX, the brood that emerged in 2020, was localized to parts of Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina. 


A few of these broods have never been formally observed, suggesting that they may have gone extinct long ago. (One of these "missing" broods, Brood XI, was last seen in Connecticut in 1954.) 


The coming Brood X (that's Brood 10 in Roman numerals) is the most widespread and prolific of the known generations. Through history, it has appeared as far west as Missouri, as far south as Georgia, as far north as Michigan and as far east as Long Island, New York.

When I moved to the Cincinnati Ohio area back in 86 it was my first contact with the cicadas, they were everywhere, you could hear their screech going down the highway with windows up, we had an outbreak here in the Nashville area years ago, where my son worked he said the Asian women were outside collecting them to eat!
