They're Coming. How Much Do You Know About The Brood?
With all that sun and all that warmth out there,

Below your feet, any day now, emerging from the ground will be Brood II 17-year cicadas. Once the ground temperature hits 64 degrees, it’s on. A swarm of cicadas known as Brood II will climb from buried lairs from North Carolina to Connecticut with a very short to-do list: find a mate, make babies and die. It will last about six weeks and most likely start mid-May. It will definitely be an event to remember. You can read more about the Brood here and you can also read more at Vienna Patch!
