I haven't experienced the music of 17 year locusts for a long time. I was
fortunate enough to be camping on the current river in Mossouri the year
that group(they do this 17 year thing in regional bands)came out to sing. It
was beautiful! They started singing in the afternoon and carried on well
into the night. Their song changes as the night progresses, becoming more
melodious, serenading you to sleep. In the morning all is quiet.
My friend didn't like them. He said If those damn bugs don't shut-up I'm
going to spray this whole state with DDT. But he doen't like jazz or
appreciate the finer things in life.
My advice is to enjoy the upcoming show!
I really don't know a thing about there life cycle, but I'd bet they are
more interested in sex than food...that's why they sing so nice.
