Coming home from washing the racecar this morning, it was like hitting mayflies they were swarming across the road so thick.

We had them for years until the fire ants. I guess 1989 was our last good hatch in my area of Arkansas.

It sure is. I got a whole swamp full of them too. Might grab a beer tonight and sit out and listen to them for a bit.

No.
The locusts in the Bible are a type of grasshopper.
Grasshoppers and crickets are edible. Adult cicadas are not.

That link is an interesting read. Maybe when Biden does away with cows , farmers can get in on the ground floor raising grass hoppers. They are 4 times more efficient at producing protein. No special slaughter required and might even replace chewing tobacco, lol. Thanks for the link.

Cicadas are edible and eaten by large numbers of people. People with shellfish allergies may be allergic to cicadas.

We visited family in southern Indiana this weekend. You could hear them buggers while driving down the highway with the windows up and radio blaring. They seamed to be Really thick near the swampy areas

Cicadas are a great source of protein for turkeys and their predators," Danks told WLKY. "When the turkeys eat the cicadas, they don't have to move and search for food, so they're not exposed to the predators eitheróplus the predators eat the cicadas, too, so it's really a triple-win for turkeys
