In the spring of 2008, Brood XIV emerged in Kentucky after 17 years underground. Millions of cicadas were on the ground, on fence posts, on trees and weeds. With up to 1.5 million cicadas per acre of land that spring; their song was almost deafening. I loved their primeval sound. I felt as if I had been transported back to the time of the mammoths. Cicadas have been on earth for millions of years. Their conservation status is ‘near threatened’ due to habitat destruction, and invasive insect species such as the emerald ash borer, which has killed millions of ash trees which once provided food for Cicada.
