The cicada nymphs burrow down until they find tree roots, then drink nutrient-rich fluid from them. This is one of the reasons the adult cicadas lay their eggs on trees, so that when the newborn nymphs fall to the ground, they're right above their primary food source and merely need to dig down.

What/how do they get nutrients to grow underground? A grain of rice goes in, a big bug with a hard shell emerges...
