Heard a solo last weekend somewhere along Toe or Noli in NW NC. Haven't seen/heard any yet here in E TN. Saw a map of approx range of this brood and it's questionable whether we'll get 'em over here or not...hope so

We get a smattering of them every year. There is a minor 7 year, and a spotty 13 year hatch that we had a few years ago, but the big one is the 17's.

We get those next year.

The last one was when my son was born. He's 16. It got biblical at my house. I remember mowing the yard and seeing the first one crawling along the grass tops. I was like " hey there little fella, where ya going?" and gently placed him on the bark of a tree. Within a couple of days there were literally millions of them and if I accidentally crushed twenty with each footfall, I didn't care. The bark on the trees was obscured by husks, and every evening these would all get knocked off by the next evening's brood until there were piles of husks six inches thick at the base of the trees like a fresh mulching. You could hear them crawling around. When they got going later in the evening the sound was deafening. There was one squirel who was eating them. He would just hang by his back toes and grab them, break them in half and only eat their tail section. He gorged himself to death, I found him in the yard, his tummy tight as a tick.

This went on for about a week. Then their carcasses started to smell. After that, the twigs started falling out of the trees. The females have these saw like ovipositors that they use to insert their eggs into small branches, which kills the branch, causing it to fall with the next strong breeze. The nymphs then crawl out of the twig and burrow into the ground where they suck on Oak roots for the next seventeen years til the skin on their back starts getting itchy.

I can't wait.

We don't get hordes of them like some of yuse guys, but we get a few. I was picking blackberries in the backyard the other day and a small green one flew into my bucket of blackberries. I put it in a jar for my little girl, she likes critters.
