RE: Cicada invasion...

Bonnie: No, you don't have to save any...I just want my kids to know the
joy of that sound...gillions of insects all buzzing and doing their
business...it's been a long time here since we had the 17 year invasion
and I can still remember how it sounds. It's like the air is alive!

Melody, they are predicting a few million in the Miami Valley. Would
you<br>like me to save a few of the exoskeletons to send you? And
actually, they<br>pretty much do emerge about the same time in the same
region. We have<br>annual cicadas every year, but I remember a year
where they seemed to be<br>everywhere--about 17 years ago.

O.K. The news has been<br>that this is a very bad&lt;br&gt;&amp;gt; year
for Cicada's (the 17&amp;lt;br&amp;gt;&amp;gt;<br>year cycle bug that is
VERY LOUD and &lt;br&gt;&amp;gt; that&lt;br&gt;&amp;gt; litters
the<br>landscape with its&amp;lt;br&amp;gt;&amp;gt; exoskeletons) in the
Miami Valley<br>&lt;br&gt;&amp;gt; of&lt;br&gt;&amp;gt; Ohio. Is there
anything I need to do&amp;lt;br&amp;gt<br><br>;&amp;gt; to protect
trees, shrubs&lt;br&gt;&amp;gt;
