Date: Wednesday, Mar/19/2003

Message: Hello,Henry Thoreau reported the cicada in the summer of 1843 in Staten Island, and wrote to his sister Helen to ask if Concord (MASS) had them; I am wondering the same–would there have been an episode in that part of New England in 1843?Thanks — Kevin Dann, Woodstock, VT

How to shut these bloody things up

Date: Sunday, Mar/2/2003

Message: Our backyard has become infested with these horrible things and my kids are terrified of them. It os not possible to hold a conversation in the garden as there are so many making so much noise. I am into electronics and wondered if anyone knows of ANY sort of audio signal that will make them either shut up or fly away. They give me the creeps and remind me of that 60’s Hitchcock film about the crows. Any advice greatly appreciated. owen [AT] — Owen, Nelson, NZ
