Are You Ready For The Cicada Invasion?
National Geographic's website describes them this way, "Shrimp sized bugs with transparent wings and beady red eyes", and they say millions are on the way. The Cicada invasion of 2013 is coming. Great.
Liz did a story this morning that said as soon as the ground reaches 64 degrees, the adorable little creatures will begin to appear from the ground where they have been apparently feeding on tree roots for 17 years. Then you will begin to hear that unsettling noise and start seeing them everywhere you turn. Everywhere.
So get your defense mechanism ready Jersey Shore. If you don't like bugs, start practicing ducking, running, screaming, freezing in place or hiding behind or under things. It's gonna be a fun summer.
