Will Cicadas Be Invading Michigan?

According to USA Today, cicadas just might be invading your yard soon.

"The brood may also appear in Michigan, Cicada Mania says. Like Brood XIX, they will begin to emerge when the soil 8 inches underground reaches 64 degrees, and are often triggered by a warm rain."

Yikes! We might be experiencing these creepy and LOUD insects during the spring and early summer.
