    Love these insects. We have just been outside amongst thousands of black ones. Never knew they sprayed a liquid either doing a pee or is it to attract a mate. When my four kitty’s were small I was for ever rescuing them from their mouths but now they eat them. Last night I had two cicadas one in each hand, they became quiet so I was able to put them in a high place away from kitty’s. I love their bug eyes.

    A few years ago was really noisy when we had golden ones and really huge, I have a dried one amongst some silk flowers. Have been told that different species come out at different times and that year was no exception, very noisy. I call them my little Troubadours as they sing songs of love to attract a mate.

    We live in SE QLD Australia
