Michael Ventura Posted April 6, 2021 Share Posted April 6, 2021 My daughter did a science report on cicadas while in the 4th grade and I learned a lot. One of the things I learned is that the vast amount of the cicadas do not make it reproduction. But the ones that do, lay dozens of eggs in the tree branches and they will soon drop and burrow into the ground and start the cycle over again. So many get squished by humans and eaten by birds and a assortment of mammals and some just die in the process of molting. But enough survive to ensure another swarm in 17th years.
