Trillions of cicadas are about to emerge after 17 years underground! This week, Dean DeVore welcomes Dr. Jim Fredericks, Chief Entomologist & Vice President of Technical and Regulatory Affairs of the National Pest Management Association to discuss the emergence of the Brood X cicadas. In the coming days and weeks along the East Coast and Midwest, the cicadas will emerge from the ground, shed their skins and partake in a month-long mating ritual, singing songs as loud as 100 decibels.
