As you know, the great cicada invasion of 2004 begins in June. It’s been 17 years since the pesky insects last darkened the skies of the eastern US. We’ve come to think of them as harmless little bugs that live only the six weeks it takes to reproduce, then the pupae are banished underground for another 17 years. But Cicadaville.com, Cincinnati’s cicada authority, knows otherwise. Protect your children!
How do Cicadas mate?
The female cicada injects her eggs under the skin of a small human child. The cicada pupae then grow inside the child until they reach maturity. Unless you protect your children they may become host to thousands of deadly Cicada pupae.
