Prepare Your Ears For Millions Of Extra Cicadas In West Virginia This Spring

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!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

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!
