Also known as the Periodical cicada, these insects spend most of their 13 year or 17 year life cycles underground in the nymph stage feeding on plant root juices. The inch long adults emerge from this stage all at once in huge numbers and live for about a month to mate, lay eggs and die. To be outside while thousands of these insects are calling is unforgettable and amazing.
