I've never seen this many. We get them here but we call them heat bugs, only hear them once you reach about 22-24C? in the summer.
I can just imagine my oldest girl, screaming. Aaaand, trying to walk home in that. Mostly screaming. GAH!
So maybe it's just me, but "sing, fly, mate, lay eggs, die" does not sound like a bad life. Kinda beats
" work crappy job, lose crappy job, get divorced, raise ungrateful teenagers, die"
I'm creeped out that all that.
Wondering how we missed 'em.
Just glad we did.
People who are not from our area don't believe how loud and crazy these things are. BM and I do! They fly into you car by the hundreds!! They try to mate with your air conditioner unit at home. It is deafening loud.
I will take our weather in Oklahoma over these bugs any day!!
I remember them from when they were here last time (when I was in high school) and I think they were in the move "Lucas"
ohhhh my! i have the heebie jeebies now!
