What sounds do you associate with spring? Spring peepers, lawnmowers, birdsongs…and cicadas. Definitely cicadas. We hear them every year, but they’ll be extra loud this spring!

Expect to start hearing these bugs in May and early June, and if you’re interested in learning more about them, Cicada Mania is a good place to start. Oh, and if you find yourself a little irritated by their deafening songs, keep in mind that some of these guys are seeing the light of day for the first time since 2003. If that isn’t something to sing about, you tell me what is!

In case you missed it, hummingbirds are also heading our way in droves this spring!
