Cicadas in Maryland

Date: Monday, Nov/17/2003

Message: I am just learning about these little creatures. Do these cicadas really have biblical significance? I read that the word cicada is not mentioned in the Bible unlike locust and grasshopper which appear repeatedly. Also, does anyone know when the cicadas are to appear in the D.C. metropolitan area? I live in Prince George’s County, MD. — Kristen, PG County MD

Latest Cicada of season?

Date: Wednesday, Nov/5/2003

Message: What is the latest day of the year you’ve seen/heard a live Cicada “in the wild” ?This year I heard one on November 3, the latest I can remember. It was warm and other insects were still active (Katydids, Preying Manti, Grasshoppers, etc). He sang in a bottomland forest near a river in the evening. His call was steady in pitch. Now it’s freezing so I don’t expect to hear Cicadas until next year.
