Cicada Damage 2003

Here is a sample of the damage done by the 17 year cicada that came out this year in our area. We have been listening to their drone for weeks now. The sound is fading, but their presence in the woods is becoming very apparent. Fortunately the damage is mainly cosmetic for the most part. The good news is that they will not be back in these numbers again for another 17 years.
