It's really disgusting if it's true. I've seen it, it's unpleasant.

There are several broods in the eastern US. They come every 3-4 years depending on your area and how many broods are present. As someone who spends most days outside I ****ing hate the years they're around. It's unbearable to listen to that shit all day long.

I visited Chicago 5-6 years ago and witnessed first hand the Cicadas. If i remember correctly, they come over every 7 years. It was an awesome experience. The sound they make is deafening due to the sheer number of cicadas. I wouldn't want to live there however.

I don't know what you're talking about Deuce, cicada noise is amazing. I'd listen to it on loop. Cicadas = summer.

We have cicadas all the time man, we just don't have the gigantic swarms. This could be different though since I didn't live here last time the brood came around.

Yeah, definitely hasn't been 17 years here in central Indiana. 4/5 years ago I couldn't sleep at night w/o plugs. You'd be out doing yardwork shirtless and one would land on your back, you slap it on instinct and you have to take a damn shower right away.

I heard summer of '07 was the last time Illinois was hit, so I'm assuming you were the same time in Indiana.
