These particular types of cicadas pop up every 17 years, I think it was 2006 that the 13 year cicadas popped up. And there is a yearly cicada too. You`d hate them more if you were a lifeguard like I was back in 06 and had to pick them out of the water every 3 seconds and listen to little girls cry non stop. They also kill a lot of the trees too.

@ferdyfred and @OldOllie: if you being attacked by a wasp or bee blow smoke in their face. They have a natural reaction to stop everything, go back to their hive, and eat any stored food. They do this as an adaption to forest fires, they eat as much as they can and prepare to renest elsewhere after the fire destroys their hive. Hair pisses them off, I think because of hairy creatures that raid their nests, like bears. Is your back hairy like a bear, OldOllie? It may be why they did that, or you may have stepped on one and not known, the pheromones from dead siblings set them off too.

Ferdyfred - Each cicada spends years under ground, but that doesn`t mean they only show up every 13-17 years. There will often be an emergence every couple years.

LOL- well wasps are cool too...
wasps are the benefit cheats, Bees are the workers
wasps just have one purpose in life
bother things, they get their cheque, get pissed n rowdy and find a picnic and cause botheration
Bees get worked up about this but like gents, carry on with their jobs
see were Im coming from here ??

No, they`re not. In fact, they`re totally UNcool. A few years back, I got stung by 2 of them at once, and I wasn`t bothering them in the least. I was bent over, and they stung me in the BACK. Now whenever I see a wasp, I will stop whatever I`m doing and kill it. If I can crush his @$$ and leave him to die slowly, all the better.

Okay, 1-3) really, really bad, 4) the Norks are once again acting like the @$$holes we`ve always known they are (yawn), and 5) cicadas are perfectly harmless. If you don`t like the noise, close your window.

McGovern: Ground nests are usually yellow jackets. They`re mean little buggers and, unlike bees, can sting multiple times. I swung a pick into a rotten stump once and found out about them the hard way.

I have to say if you think the article of the Tornadoes are bad just look at what is going on in Oklahoma right now. Way worse than yesterday. Time to get ready for the shelter again.

Cicadas may be annoying as drat but they aren`t all that news worthy.

WASPs have to live somewhere. Since the retired jews got Boca in Florida most WASPs go to Arizona. I`ve never heard of them eating bugs before. They like iced tea a lot. And mayonnaise.

I normally know if there is a wasps nest around, they are not hard to miss. the nests are not in lawns though- in trees, but outbuildings and sheds seem popular- and hedges. I usually knock a nest down while it is tennis ball size to make em go somewhere else!
