They are everywhere and they are annoying.

Thirteen years, buddy. They're with us for the summer.

Annoying bastards, ain't they?

Yep. They drivin' me crazy. I don't want to even go on a run because, not only is it about 102, but can't even hear myself think. :p

Had one of them land on me once while I was driving. Thought I had an itch on my head, I went to scratch it and the little bastard started with the buzzing. I involuntarily slammed on the brakes and major hijinks almost ensued. :(

I guess it depends on how many trees you have

Each region gets them at different times - and often different years. The various species have differing life cycles - reoccurring every 13 years or so - but the void years are often filled by a different variety of cicada. That is what I THINK anyway - an entomologist would know better.

There must be a lot of different varieties because we used to get them on Long Island every year in droves.

Princeton got hit with those friggin' things about five years ago and they are intense. You could barely walk down a sidewalk without stepping on them. I remember driving past one house with my windows up and it was still noisy as hell. Thankfully we livedjust far enough away to miss the wave.
