Cicadas have arrived
I had heard a few cicadas over the past couple of weeks, but last night they arrived in my yard in force. For the first time since we moved here, they were buzzing in the tree over my head as I was watering the berries. These critters are new to me. I really don't know much about them. Does their arrival mean that a lot more plants are going to be damaged? Do I need to be concerned?
Can one of you long-time Okies fill me in on them? And what's the stuff I read about them online that says they appear every 17 years? Oh, yeah? So do we just have rotating crops of them every year, or what?!
