Re: RE: Pests-Grasshoppers/Cicadas Invasion

For those interested (or worried) about these critters.  I did a quick web
search for articles relating to Periodical Cicadas, and came up with a few
good sites (complete with recipes for proper preparation!).  Turns out that
a new species has been named, so now there are seven recognized species of
Periodic Cidada.  There are thirty numbered broods, but some of them may
not really exist or are insignificant.  There are 17 broods of 17 year
Cicada, and 13 of 13 year Cicada.  Sort 'a makes sense, since the broods
are based on years of occurence, and there is potentially a brood for every
year (somewhere).  There are maps of the most important broods at some of
these sites, so you can see if you're likely to be an area that will see an
emergence this year.

Broods 10 and 25 are the ones for 2004.  Brood 10 is a big one and is a
seventeen year brood.  Brood 25 is apparently an insignificant one and is a
thirteen year brood.  Brood 25 doesn't seem to be mentioned anywhere, but
if you live in the south and see Periodical Cicadas this year, it is
probably Brood 25 of the thirteen year sorts.
