Found an exoskeleton yesterday, but haven't heard any. They will probably drown if Tropical Storm drops expected rainfall.

They're out in force in SE Pennsylvania. Making a racket. Caught one emerging with its new wings right below a hungry Robin's nest the other day.

The insects are best eaten just after the nymphs break open their skin and before their exoskeleton turns black and hard, cicada aficionados say.
