I’ve just read that 17 year cicadas are coming early…as stragglers (early emergers)
I want to know if this is true. I heard of it from a website that I entered when I was searching for Cicada season 2010 in Illinois.
If they are truly coming back then this is my time to redeem myself with them. In 2007 I LOVED them and found them to be quite sexy but I had to set them free. I’m not sure if it was male and female but one climbed atop the other so I assmed them to be M/F but Cicadas do not mate like that. They have strange positions.
Anyway…I hope this is true. I hope they are coming out all over IL.
