They're Baaaaaack!

Brood X of the 17 year cicadas has finally started appearing on my property.

17 years underground, emerge, mate and lay eggs, and die.  By the millions.  I'm curious as to what my cats and the pup will think of them once they really get going and start landing on the screens and porches.


  1. Be careful around the bases of trees - - Copperheads like to dine on the emerging nymphs and people are bitten each year in the South during the summer months.

    1. I've heard that and seen copperheads on my place. My big concern is my pup more than me.
