Yea, we get those every year also. I remember one year they got in the house at night, and I stayed up looking for it because there was no way I could get any sleep knowing that bug is flying around and could get in my mouth. If it was outside thats different, I expect to wake up with something crawling on me.

Where they grow millions of Gimongous mosquitos!!! Driving from Georgia to Texas once, I stopped at a rest area in Louisiana. We could barely see through the windshield fo all the bug guts, and you could almost walk on the clouds of mosquitos to get to the bathroom. It was like a living fog bank.....

The Humane Society is warning pet owners that cicadas emerging across the eastern United States this spring could look like "a yard full of chicken nuggets" to cats and dogs.

Let'* set the record straight about cicadas;
There are several types; yearly, 7-year, 13-year, and 17-year
The 17 year broods are the ones that came up in the eastern Midwest in '99
They are black w/yellow wing veins and red eyes.
The yearly ones are are green w/black wings and eyes, and they have reddish markings on their back.
Please consider me an authority on cicadas, my mother did many programs at the park she works at as Senior Naturalist(read; THE BOSS), and I learned much from her.
You may remember her, to tout one of her programs, she ATE a cicada on local TV .
The video ended up playing in the Virgin Islands, Europe, and on the scoreboard at Jacobs Feild.
P.*. they make GREAT fishbait
