One of the most notorious sounds in Georgia that indicate that spring, early summer is near, are the sounds of cicadas. As we’ve already mentioned this year, cicadas in Georgia are going to sound much more intense due to the millions (that’s right, millions) that will be emerging from a 17-year slumber. While this in itself is going to be a natural marvel, there is something else to consider – the snakes that often snack on cicadas. More cicadas mean more copperheads, and here is everything you need to know to keep your family and fur friends safe.
