The Cincinnati Enquirer has a new article about Gene Kritsky.

The 5 billion periodical cicadas that invaded Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky last summer, cutting into tree branches to lay their eggs, have caused more intensive blooming this summer in parts of Delhi, Green Township, Mount Healthy and other areas hard hit by the red-eyed insects, said Gene Kritsky, a cicada expert and biology professor at the College of Mount St. Joseph.
