17 Years Ago, North Carolina Was Invaded… And It’s About To Happen Again

If you were already dreading North Carolina’s summer sounds that are annually created by crickets and frogs, then it might be time to invest in a good set of ear plugs. The spring and summer of 2017 are set to be noisy ones. Hiding right beneath you this entire time, there’s a fleet of insects that are finally ready to emerge from the ground after a long seventeen years.

Expected to invade not only the Tar Heel State but also South Carolina and Georgia, another cyclical invasion of cicadas is on its way.
