    Why? What do they do that makes them friendly. Not trying to be snarky; I seriously have no idea.

    ^^Not just dog's eat them, there was a report that a man went to the hospital for having an allergic reaction (similar to one from shellfish) after eating about 30 of them stir fried. In the paper today, they talk about a book called "Cicada-licious: cooking and enjoying periodical cicadas"
    :sick:

    And unfortunately some folks are wearing them :yuk:

    I wore cicada exoskeletons in my hair as a joke during a homecoming theme day back in high school.

    It being the early 1990s, most girls wore their hair permed up really big. I didn't have a perm and bear-claw bangs, but I set my hair the night before for the effect, and then strategically placed dessicated cicada exoskeletons throughout my enormous mallrat hairdo

    Let it be known that I made a name for myself that day.

    :sick: ew...that's just disgusting.

    my friend told me their life cycle is 17 years and (shes not making this up) and for that matter of time they stay under ground, latched to a plant root. When it's time to mate [right now], they come above ground, mate, lay their eggs and die.





    ...gross, gross, gross, but still, i find it all funny at some point :lol: .

    We have cicadas on a yearly basis in here .. they're really noisy and to me it reminds me of summer!!!
    I wore cicada exoeskeletons ... when I was a kid, I wore 'em as brooches .. I think they may look cool if able to cover in metal or lacquer them or something ...
    Good times!

    Yeah, 'cause they have those grabby little foot-claw things and stick to even just an ordinary tee-shirt.

    We have the annual ones, too. The 17 year ones are a different breed, I think.

    I still think they're pretty cool. I find most bugs pretty fascinating, though I have no tolerance for termites or cockroaches, and I get quite cross when I discover slugs noshing away at any of my garden plants.

    Yeah! I think you are tFspotter I relate the most regarding upbringing!
    I like all types of bugs ... I do not think I'm grossed out about roaches ... I've touched even the extremely large ones with a really hard "shell" impossible to kill!
    All the stories I could tell!

    PS About garden slugs ... I use to salt 'em because my grandmother hated them.

    we had them annually where i grew up in long island...my brother would chase me around with the shells...i'm oddly fasciinated by bugs as well...when we were kids...my brother and i would play in the woods and we'd roll over fallen logs and rocks and try to identify the bugs that crawled out from underneath...hahaha...never expected that from a city girl...did you?...but i have a whole nature side as well...my parents gave me a book on insects in my christmas stocking one year...and it just went from there...

    we salted slugs as well... :ninja: :innocent:
