Beware Of Extra Copperheads Out Snacking On Cicadas In North Carolina This Spring

A short time ago, we told you about the upcoming emergence of the Brood X Cicada set to take place this spring in parts of North Carolina. Expect the volume to roar to an all-time high when the event occurs, as this brood is the largest in mass of all of the 15 broods that appear periodically and in 17-year increments. Well, as if the annoyance of the noise weren’t enough, it seems there is more than one reason for this year’s emergence to turn your head: copperheads!
