Brood X Cicadas May Be Coming Back Soon After 17 Years
Talkers Magazine Publisher Michael Harrison and I had a great on-air hour together this morning during the 9:00 a.m. hour.
You can listen to the interview on demand by using your WPG Talk Radio smartphone app ... the interview was on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 from 9:05 a.m. to 10:06 a.m.
Michael and I talked about animal welfare and a myriad of other important topics.
In part, we talked about the National Wildlife Federation and (your own backyard) becoming a certified wildlife habitat. Which ours is.
After our program, I went to the National Wildlife Federation website and stumbled upon a very important, well sourced article.
It is my belief that there are no coincidences and that nothing happens by accident. I had not heard about this potential reemergence from anyone/anywhere else.
According to this extensive article, after 17 years, the Brood X periodical Cicadas may be coming back very soon ... quite possibly in May, 2021.
Here’s a link to this valuable resource:
I vividly remember the incredibly loud sound that the Cicadas make.
It’s a rare phenomenon. When they’re ready, they will emerge by the millions from underground.
The Cicadas are expected to impact the mid-Atlantic, Midwest and Southwest regions. Some emerge after 13 years. Others after 17 years.
So, if one night soon, you hear a near deafening, somewhat high pitched winding and clicking sound ... it’s them.
The noise lasts all night long, and, it’s incredibly loud, even with all of your windows closed.
The link that I’ve provided above will tell you everything you need to know about Cicadas.
