Cicadas to Emerge After 17 Years, But Maybe Not in New Jersey

Cicadas are red-eyed bugs that emerge from the ground every 17 years.  They’re pretty noisy (though, their sound is soothing to me) and a little creepy.  But we might not see as many cicadas here in New Jersey.

The rest of the Northeast will have to deal with the Brood V cicada.

Get ready if you live outside of New Jersey!
