The cicadas have arrived and they are out in full force!

As we have been waiting over the past few weeks for them to emerge, we have been learning a lot about them.

Here a two more facts:

1. They have the longest life cycle of any insect.

2. They are 1-2" long and their wing span is 3-4".

Just in case you haven't seen or may not want to see any in person, check out some of the pics sent in by viewers.
