Cicadas: The dormant army beneath your feet - Rose Eveleth
posted September 12 2013 11:51.06 by spic0m




Every 13 or 17 years, billions of cicadas emerge from the ground to molt, mate and die. Adult cicadas only live a few weeks above ground, but you'd be hard pressed to ignore them -- they are extremely loud! Rose Eveleth explains everything you need to know about these noisy insects, admitting that there's still some things we just don't understand.
