OT - Cicada Sounding Bugs
I noticed these in SC last summer, too - I don't think I've ever seen the bug that creates the sound, but they are LOUD! We've had cicadas in MA, but they never sounded like this. They seem to be loudest in late afternoon and evening, and their "song" is somewhat cyclical. I would guess they're some kind of cicada, but haven't seen them or any related vegetation damage. Can anyone tell me what they are?
