Where do I hide?

Date: Tuesday, Sep/25/2001

Message: It seems many of you really like the sights and sounds of the cicadas. Personaly, they freak me out! The last plague of them was in Cincinnati in 1987 and it was a nightmare for me. When the next batch come in 2004, I want to be anywhere but here. Can anyone tell me a good place to go then? Does LA get them at that time. If not, I will go and visit my brother. Help! I am already dreading 2004. Thanks — Christa, Cincinnati, OH

Message: a few years ago I managed a decent photo of a cicada in the coastal plain of North Carolina in September 1999. Would you care to see if you could ID it? Randy Emmittbirdcr [AT] concentric.comwww.rlephoto.com — Randy Emmitt, Durham, NC

Will they die out

Date: Monday, Sep/10/2001

Message: Im a mail carrier, and I have to deal with the cicadas every summer. I was told by my father when I was little that cicadas are dangerous, and they will sting the hell out of you. I want to know if the cicadas will just die out or will I just have to worry about this for the rest of my career. Also I want to know why do the cicadas make those different sounds, and why they only do it when the sun is out. — Vivian Walker, 5100 Mineola Rd College Park MD 20740

Cicada capture

Date: Saturday, Sep/8/2001

Message: I captured and mounted what I believe is an adult male North American. He was apparently exhausted and near death as he was easy to catch. Lived in this state for all of my 39 yrs and never knew about these critters till last week. Was caught 8/31/2001. Apparently these can survive -30 F temps of winter or they fly long distances??Thanks Brian B — Brian Broughten, Minneapolis, Minnesota USA

Cicadas in my back yard?

Date: Friday, Sep/7/2001

Message: I watched one emerge from its shell lastnight. It hung around for about 5 hoursthen left. I do not see on the maps anyindications that they live as far southand west as Houston. Could this be a different insect or have they migratedfurther south and now live in a largerarea? — Robert Johnson, Houston, Texas

elusive cicada

Date: Sunday, Sep/2/2001

Message: Why can’t I see the cicada’s in the trees. I walk all around the tree trying to spot them and I can’t see a single one. How can that be? Being that they are so big and there are so many of them how can they hide so well? It befuddles me. — stelcha, Illinois
