What help me on the problem is I got my water hose and sprayed the trees when they started to sing and it got them off the trees. They flew over to my neighbors trees so now they are over on their house bothering them. EVIL LAUGH Laughing

I don't like it when they get in the house (but the cats love it!) but I don't mind the noise so much...kind of soothing. So far they're not a problem this far North but they usually come a little later in the Summer.

Seems the rain the other night might have drowned a good chunk of them lol

There havent been as many in the last day or so.

I took the dog for a walk Wednesday night and it was like the ground was alive there were so many crawling around.

I just didnt like stepping on all of them lol. Reminds me of Temple of Doom with all the bugs in the chamber.

This only problem I have with them is when I go to a weekend house. I can not leave the window open to and hear the deers, bears, and bobcats outside playing while I am laying down to sleep.

These things (and other bugs) are the reason why Tauntaun Girl HIBERNATES from June until October Laughing Laughing Laughing

Yeah, they really suck. I went out for bike ride yesterday and they were all snoozing on the cycling/pedestrian bridge that crosses the Cumberland. When I rode through their group they all went crazy.

I'm about to go for another ride today. I had at least a dozen crash into some part of my body. The noise is so deafening that my ears are ringing when I get back from my ride.

On the plus side I haven't seen any bees, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, etc for weeks. I don't think they like the cicadas, either.
