really????they have shells??? are you kidding me? this is not even a bug? it is a shell of a bug? really???do you think it is still inside? do they go in and out of them like hermit crabs? o my god! don't they go away for the winter? like the skeeters?
Yep, cicada. Not sure the year for this one. We had a summer ultimate team called "Cicada Smoothie" during the 2004 DC invasion of 17-year cicadas. They covered everything: trees, fields, buildings, even pets. Lots of dogs ate them and got stomach aches. Our cats kept pouncing at the windows every time they flew by -- like for two straight months.
yr kidding. right?does that happen here? because... i don't think i would like that at all. is it IN THERE still? o, this is just grossing me out.
Nah, it's gone. Just a shell.The mid-Atlantic is full of them. I think some species have 13 year cycles, others have 17. And a few get messed up and emerge early or late depending on weather conditions or changes to the food supply (underground tree roots). The shell is a one-time thing.This is probably not something that sounds, um, super appealing, but at least a few folks are known to gather the shells and make string necklaces.
i understand the making of the necklace way more than the wearing of the necklace.o dear. the bugs are never going away.
it's a republican, kate
