CICADAS

Post by anniebelle » 1 week ago

How many of you live in a Cicada state? Well we are lucky in Ohio to have them. I rarely go out, so not a big problem for me. Until last night!

Milo has made himself a "cat door" in the bottom of the screen. He loves to go out and sun himself on the balcony! No problem, until he invited five little friends inside to play! I had quite a time catching those little buggers! This morning my back is totally shot!

We have a gizillion cicadas here. They aren't as big as I remember. They don't bother me at all. They are just messy. There are a million little holes in our back yard and a million of those.skins they hatch out of. I remember my first cicada experience. I was about 18. The cicadas were so bad, you couldn't take a step on the driveway without stepping on dead or dying cicada. 😳

There's like 15 northeastern states. Think they are supposed to be gone by end of June.

Hi everyone! I live about 40 miles south of Pittsburgh in Ohio. We had them a few years ago. I am so terrified of them I had to have someone go everywhere with me so I could “make a run for it.” I went down to get the mail at the end of the driveway at midnight & ran all the way. They kind of settle down overnight. My brother was in town & we all went to a food festival. There was a lady with them walking all over the back of her shirt. It’s an awful thing to be terrified of insects your whole life, but dealing with cicadas is more than I can take. 😭😭😭

Amy,
Besides our taste in fragrances, we also share a fear of insects ! I'm the same way, terrified of bugs. My windows need to be replaced and I believe that's how some of them get in the house from time to time. I'd rather deal with a mountain lion :D

By the way, it's nice to get a chance to chat with people from around the country. I've lived in NY and NJ all my life so it's refreshing to "meet" folks from other parts of the US.
Wonderful weekend to all you fine ladies ! :)

Luckily here in CA we don’t get them. {{{shudder}}}

Bugs are okay (NOT SPIDERS😱) but they belong outside. As long as they stay in their home and not mine it’s all good!

I think we have a few here every year, and if not, they look just like that, but they can grow pretty HUGE! One flew onto my front porch a few years ago and landed. It was sick, apparently, and couldn't fly good, and every time I would try to come out the front door, it would start making that noise it does so loud you would have to hold your ears. It wouldn't go away, so I had to sneak up on it with a shovel and whack it! It was hard as a rock. It landed in the shrubs and I had to hit it a few more times. It was like hitting a rock.
