Artist's Description

They are strange-looking, they are winged, they have large red eyes, and they make loud noises. The invasion is on. Are they Mothman?
No, it’s Brood XIX of the 13-year cicadas. They have returned. The Great Southern Brood are coming out of the ground, and appearing, especially, throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Mississippi, and Arkansas. But Brood XIX, specifically, can be found in all of these states: AL, AR, GA, IN, IL, KY, LA, MD, MO, MS, NC, OK, SC, TN, TX, and VA. There are 15 known broods, as the offspring groups are known: 12 that come every 17 years and three that come every 13 years.

They were abundant here in Ironton, Missouri in 2011
