Brood XIII News Update, 5/19/2007

Filed under: Brood XIII — Dan @ 9:16 am

Bug spray ineffective on cicadas [Beacon News] “Officials: Pesticides won’t do any good in warding off the bugs”. That’s what I’ve been saying all along. I was watching CNN last night and they said that there are so few bees left in North America to pollinate our food plants, that we have to import our food from South America and China (China!?!). No sense killing any more bees in the process of trying to kill a cicada.

    On a walk this evening we saw lots of nymphs emerging in Brookfield, IL south of the train tracks west of Prairie Ave. but when we crossed north of the tracks and went east into Kiwanis Park there were no nymphs emerging. Can the ground temperature be that different just blocks apart?
