What is this treat we found? Or shall we call it a delicacy? In China it sure is! This is a Cicada bug. Do you hear those loud vibration sounds in the trees? Here is our culprit. We researched him (and it was a him because he made sounds) and found out he doesn't bite or sting. The kids got a chance to pet him before he flew off into the trees. This particular Cicada lives from 13-17 yrs. Can you believe it? It burrows 8 1/2 feet into the ground and is nymph for most of its life. As a nymph it eats liquid from tree and plant roots. As an adult it eats tree sap. It really is a very interesting bug!
