[QUOTE=Katatonic717;40215548]But I mean, they seem so docile. Do they eat into your arm or some shit? How? Why? I need answers![/QUOTE] They have a little Proboscis. So it's kinda like a needle.

They drill into trees for sap and if they mistake your arm for a branch they might try looking for sap there as well.

Peace in the Middle East Coast. Come on Detroit
cicadas are weird, we have a tonne of them in phoenix during the summer and you just get used to the constant droning they put out, but i've literally never seen one even though i can hear them 24/7 during the summer

It actually becomes an indicator that summer is coming when you start to hear them for the first time of the year.
[QUOTE=hl2poo;40215745]Good thing I live in Middle Coast.[/QUOTE] They still come here, Midwest isn't safe!
I remember when they swarmed around here, they got so loud in some wooded areas that they could cause hearing damage. So forget the flamethrower, get earplugs. That said, I love the sound of cicadas, and they always used to (and still do) scare the living shit out of my brother. Of course, I also grew up next to a tree that a giant colony of crows would always spend the night in, and I absolutely adore their calls now (their dusk and dawn cacophonies were symphonies/lullabies/the best thing to wake up to for me, so I'm pretty weird I guess) [editline]9th April 2013[/editline] God I miss those birds, I should light up a neighborhood tree with LEDs every night. (They don't see well in the dark, but owls do) to try and attract them.
Cicadas are awesome, though. They're like Ambient Noise: The Insect and synonymous with summer here in the midwest.
At first I'm quite fond of them. And then they start falling out of trees and whenever you get even relatively close to one that's upside-down it flips the fuck out and scares the shit out of you.
I love the sound of them, but I think they look creepy. Back in elementary school, we were all taking a walk outside and my friend had a massive one on his back. For the rest of the day I was paranoid.
Man we have the same things in Greece they just annoy the living fuck out of me!
fuck your country's bugs. I'm so happy the UK is pretty much a safe haven from anything dangerous or gross insect/animal wise

[QUOTE=Archonos 2;40217763]"Flying insects will descend on cities, towns and villages from [b]New England to North Carolina[/b]" I live in Atlanta. I am immune!![/QUOTE] Alabama, represent! Seriously, these things just make me feel summery. The map in Battlefield 3, Nabadan flats? err.. whatever it's called. If you go into the fields and listen closely when the gunfire dies down, you can hear them chirping. Which makes me smile.

Meanwhile in Finland, I don't get to do anything exciting like that. Instead, I whack crane flies with electric fly swatters.
The sounds of The Thing in the 1982 film were mostly cicada sounds. So yeah you should get your flamethrowers.
It wouldn't seem right to not hear them summer nights.
