    Where the hell are the cicadas?

    If I don't start to see these damn bugs I'm going to be mad! They've been talking about the cicada invasion for over a month now and I have yet to see or hear one freaking bug! I think the media exaggerated, once again, and I don't think we're in for an invasion. And, not that I wanted to see 200,000 thousand cicadas on my front lawn, I was sort of intrigued by the whole idea.

    Media
    Cicadas


    There's not a stone in my heart I've left unturned
    Not a piece of my soul that I ain't searched
    The only answer I found for all this hurt
    Is there ain't not answer here on earth

    I actually thought about that, Dozer. I worry if they would fly into my car. And you're right, if one did, there probably would be an accident.

    what's the correct pronounciation for cicada?

    I say si-cod-ah and I'm not changing for anyone.


    ..but I heard someone say it pretty differently

    its suh-cay-duh, and Val, you haven't seen any yet. At my house I will see them flying around, but only about 3-5 in the same area. At church today near the basketball court there were a couple. All the little kids were picking them up and putting them on the little girls.

    Val, I saw a few at my friends' house- they only live about 3 miles away, but I haven't seen any at my place. Sounds like the typical DC exaggeration again....

    I hear they're just organizing so they can hold up traffic on the Beltway and invade the Mall for the Trillion Bug March for Entomological RIghts.

    Maybe the cicadas are having a Y2K problem and their years got thrown off. Did anyone think to warn them?

    KardShark and OpIv, no, I haven't seen any! Not a one!!!!!!!! I heard on the radio this morning that some areas have the hundreds of thousands as they were saying but other areas don't have any. I guess I'm in an area that doesn't have any. I've seen them in past years, but nothing like what they were saying was supposed to happen. A very, very, very small part of me is sad that I won't see the cicada masses. I also find it hard to believe that in an area where there are tons of open grassy fields and big house lots, we won't get see what some areas are seeing.

    I admire china because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime.

    Blame Chemlawn-

    In 17 years, if the ground they live in was treated at one time or another- then they're dead.

    In the rural areas where they were left undisturbed- they will most likely flourish
