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

Soon, a swarm of giants will emerge from the ground and it’ll invade South Carolina like nothing you’ve seen for years. And, oh it’s happening, whether we want it to or not.

For 17 years they’ve been underground busy at work and transforming into the beautiful giants we’ll soon see traveling in massive swarms, invading our yards, our homes and our lives this Spring in South Carolina. They’re loud, almost intimidating and quite simply — amazing to watch. Do you know what they are?

Do you remember the last time Cicada invaded South Carolina? In our comments section we’d love to know and hear your memories of this amazing event that only happens every 17 years in the Palmetto State.
