NOTICE:
OK guys---Bear Jr tested the Noise these Cicada make, from his back Deck, above the pond. He measured them to be 75db.
He measured his vacuum cleaner @ 73db.
Sustained 80db to 90db may cause hearing loss.

Hmmm... Kill the bastards. Oh wait the heat wave might take care of that!

They love the heat.

Right now, looking out my big front windows, they look like Hundreds of miniature helicopters flying all over the place!!!

Oh how I hate the sound of cicadas. Had to put up with them when I went through Army Basic Training at Fort Jackson, SC in 1975. I recall the Drill Sergeants telling us, "If it gets too bad, put your hearing protection on." It didn't help much, especially when you could feel it in your body.

Yup!!
We can't hear much from inside our Log House, because the logs are 8" thick.
However I can hear these damn Cicadas, even with my TV on, and me being more than Half-Deaf !!

I rarely leave the house, but Mrs Bear said no Noise this morning.
Could be all the rain we had over night, but It's Always Raining around here!!!
Maybe They're busy packing their little Bags!!!
