Leann reports that there are hundreds coming up through the ground in Bowling Green, KY.

June reports that there are so many that the grass is moving in Richmond, KY.

Becca reports “There are hundreds in my yard in Huntington, West Virginia“.

Verna reports that the emergence has begun in Frankfort, KY.

John Ashville reports that they’re singing in Asheville, NC.

Mike reports that “the yard looks alive as hundreds, perhaps thousands have emerged in the lawn” in Radcliff, Hardin County KY.
