cicadas – when???

Date: Friday, Feb/28/2003

Message: Our daughter will be planning a wedding and I know the 17 cicadas are due the summer of 2004 in Cincinnati. I sure don’t want a bride covered with cicadas (although she LOVES them!!) Can you tell me what months they come and how long they stay and when they are the worst?THANKS SO MUCH!!! — Peg Bailey, Cincinnati, Ohio

Message: I have heard it said that you can calculate the air temperature from the frequency and duration of the cicada’s buzz. Does anyone know about this? The geographic area of interest re: this question is N Ontario, Canada between Algonquin Park and Ottawa. We go to a camp in that area and the cicada calls are very loud on a hot day. I would like to be able to calculate the temp. Thank you. — maureen, Vancouver, Canada
