2024 is going to be the biggest cicada swarm in generations.

2 very rare 13 and 17 year species are going to come out of the ground at the same time. What does this mean? Free protein.

How are you planning on getting extra protein gains during this once in a life time event?

      It's not the biggest since 950, just since 1803. Every 221 years the cycles link up, and it is on us to decide whether we need it or keep it.

        You can't irradicate cicadas. There's too many of them. That's the whole reason they spend so much time underground. Also they are good for the environment. Lots of animals will eat this year. The bugs will die feeding the plants

        Might as well get some the gains for yourself. Lots of cicada recipes are being posted. Might as well try some

      Cicada broods don't have much overlap on purpose (as much as that makes sense for something driven by selection pressure). So different regions will have their 17 or 13 year cicada event on different years. It's similar to solar eclipses. They happen all the time, but it's very rare for a total eclipse to occur in a given spot.

      Also, the two broods emerging at the same time won't really increase cicada density, there will just be a wider area with them this year.

        So cicadas just stop at the exact border of shithole Massachusetts? Insects respect borders? Or is the map moronic?

    The first time I saw a cicada as a child, I ran away screaming. You see, I thought it was a giant horsefly, and I had been bitten by horseflies before

    Cicadas look tasty could we DNA engineer them so they taste like beef?

      It's been 17 years since I ate one, but if I'm remembering right then a fried cicada tastes like a buttery cheese curd with a small initial crunch.

      pic rel. How did they bite you without jaws lol? Their legs can be a bit sharp, so you probably just felt a little poke as it landed and reacted like a preteen girl.

        I like holding them. Eventually they think you're a tree and lower their rostrum to try to pierce your skin.
        Let me see if I can find a picture.

      Why would Sci want to know about cicada recipes and protein gains?
