The cicada invasion is nearing its peak in the D.C. area.

More warm weather this week will send more cicadas up from the ground and onto trees, fences and sidewalks. We have perhaps another month or so of cicadas making noise, mating, and laying eggs before things start to calm down.

And yes, given the appetite of birds and other local wildlife for the winged delicacies, that will also mean more half-eaten zombie cicadas roaming around between now and the beginning of July.

Given that we’re near the peak, we’re wondering how your expectations for Brood X compare to the reality of the number of cicadas around town at this point.

More? Less? Let us know in the poll below.
