Cicadas Emerge After 13 Years Underground

Remember 1998? The year before we were all going to party like it’s 1999? Well, it was also the last sighting of cicadas before they went underground, which means that their 13-year-itch has come to roost, and the insects are starting to swarm across the southern U.S.

If you live in Tennessee, Alabama, or Georgia, you may already be aware of the fact that it’s cicada time, as the bugs emerge in droves to prepare for their mating season. The insects are harmless, but most people take beef with them because of the loud buzz that fills the air once it comes time for male cicadas to find a mate. Males making a big fuss trying to get the attention of females? Totally uncharacteristic.

While residents may be busting out the earplugs, scientists are scrambling to study the insects, as they won’t have another chance to do so until 2024. And seeing as these cicadas should only be around for another 5-6 weeks before they head underground for the next 13 years, they better hop to it.

Any readers out there seen a cicada yet??
