This Spring, Millions Of Cicadas Are Set To Emerge In Indiana After 17 Years Underground
Well, folks, it’s that time of year – well, that time of the century – again. It’s going to be one of those years, where we’re serenaded with the sounds of (literally) billions of cicadas. Some folks find the sounds insufferable, but others seem to find a certain comfort in the constant buzzing of the little fellas. One thing is for sure: Spring 2021 is going to be chock full of them!
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Intriguingly, there is also a species of cicadas that emerge every 13 years. It’s an immensely rare treat to be alive for years during which both the 13 and 17-year varieties emerge; the next time this serendipitous event occurs, it’ll be the year 2115. For some reason, we have doubts that we’ll be able to catch that one.
