Post information about your neighborhood and the swarms of ciadas invading it.
I, for one, am terrified at the thought of cicadas. I moved from the southwest and so this will be my first time dealing with these things. From what I’ve heard, they’re loud as all hell and cover entire streets. I’ve got to start boarding up all my windows and barricading my house, it’s like the zombie apocalypse.
We shouldn’t see a ton in the County. Mostly going to be confined to the south and west of us.
Poor cicadas in arlington. They might have an SUV flip over on them.
Seconded – haven’t noticed any, after expecting the swarm.
Thank goodness that Arlington doesn’t have homelss shelters for cicadas. The incoming hoard from the south and west would be of biblical plague proportion.
Are you trying to take away the rights of cicadas at homeless shelters?
How do you feel about the right to breathe clean air?
@newty, gosh maybe you are right. Afterall, no one gets sick from breathing cicada scent. But, bars don’t allow me to smoke cicadas inspite of the fact that no one gets sick from breathing burning cicada exo-skeleton. Thus, there is no right to clean air. (make sense? of course not!)
I’m guessing that with all of the development over the past 15 years many of the cicadas have been dug up and relocated or paved over. I remember the last brood in 2004 was pretty bad but it’s nothing to freak out about. Just big bugs flying around (poorly), getting it on and then dying.
I have not seen or heard a single one. I was also here the last time they came to visit and it’s not a big deal at all. Nobody should be scared or nervous – it’s totally overblown. During the summer we have bugs flying about, and the cicadas were just bugs flying along with all the others. A totally made up story, in my opinion.
No cicadas. I’m in Arlington Heights , yes, the poor sister of N. Arlington. From the maps I’ve seen, Arlington is a bit too far north(east). We are in a cicada gap, as Bethesda is (i think) slated for them. As usual, I am extremely well informed and confident in my answer. :-)
The cool temperature of the last couple days has delayed them, but they will be here soon. Neighbors have seem them while digging in their garden here in South Arlington.
