  1. That is cool. We find the cicada shells everywhere around our house, but are yet to watch one emerge.

    Thanks!

  20. We have the cicada killer wasps in our yard and driveway. They kept getting worse each year and we had to spray as our 3 year old started getting scared. They are better this summer, but they are big and look very mean. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cicada_killer_wasp

  29. Thanks for letting me know about your pictures! Emme and I looked at them and discussed it! Last year we went on a cicada hunt and she was the first of us to find one who had just come out of his shell! It was just amazing!
