How many people know what these are? And...Anybody know a good rifle, pistol or shotgun round to get rid of these noisy critters. They are on everything. Trees, bushes, my deck, my BBQ grill, side walk, My pickup, my day lilies and of all things. ON MY IRIS'... Mad

Are they a little too noisy for yah?? Very Happy You can wait until somewhere around the first or 2nd week of July and they should be gone. If not click Pests for more info. We had quite a few of them up here back in the middle to late 90's.

Yer kiddin'. Right Omini? I have seven achres of various trees of about 50' tall. And you expect ME to cover them with cheeze cloth? RIGHT!!

You can come out here right with Stovey. He can shoot them with his trusty Red Rider BB gun and you can "net" trees. Don't mind me...I'll be on mydeck drinkin' beer, BBQin' and watchin'the proceedings. Laughing

Trap them and deep fry them? Apparently they are eaten in some parts of the world.

Cicadas have been eaten in China, Malaysia, Burma, Latin America, Germany, the Congo and in the United States

Yuck

Arizona is full of those things too. I have ringing in my ears that sounds just like em. It's irritating as hell, those things go forever and leave their empty shells on everything. Native Peoples used to eat them, it's gone out of vogue now tho. with the advent of peanuts and other foods that don't stick a leg in your throat. Wings and legs are hard to swallow. Mexicans eat grasshoppers and crickets. They just fry up a batch and fill a tortilla, a little hot salsa and there ya go! There remains a border between our countries to this day, often breeched by those that want more than crickets to eat.

Good luck with the noise BushM, (I've got it forever stationed in my ears now) but they're supposed to be seven year bugs, I don't remember being without them in Az. And the Freeking Noisy Mocking birds too. They go day and night lookin for a mate. If you live near a telephone pole you're likely to have a mocking bird perched up there squawking up a storm of whistles and noises to beat the band. Even at 2 or 3 or 4 am they're horny SOBs. Did I say that?

Yes
Suz

yip those cicadas are noisy allright and the 7ish year thing is right too. we had a huge year for them back home up north in the 80s the birds loved it seeing fantail trying to eat them was a hoot the kingfishers(like a small kookaburra) got in on the act and were seen up in the bush full as a bull. they are great trout food and a muddler minnow makes a great fly to use when cicadas are around.they will go when the weather gets cold so turn the radio up and have another whisky or two.
