Video Of Cicada Hatching in Spring 2008.

In 2008 we had The Deadly Cicada hatch on Cape Cod. Cicada hatch in cycles of around 30 years depending were you are. They hatch, burrow a hole up from the soil lay eggs and die. Then the larvae eat the roots of bushes flowers and plants.
The 2008 hatching was horrible. Cicada omit a screeching sound that migrates through the trees. Its nothing nice. As far as we know there is no way to combat cicada.
I first noticed them when I had some landscapers doing spring clean up. I watch the cicada come out of their nests deep under my yard.
