HOUSTON - Get ready to bug out, because it's almost time for the return of the cicadas. If you haven't seen or heard them in a while, it might be because they live underground on a 17-year cycle, then come out to mate.
The Brood V species' cycle began in 1999, which comes to an end next month. Depending on where you live, you might see more of them; a lot more.
Cicada Mania reports this summer, billions of cicadas are expect to swarm the northeastern area of the U.S. like a biblical plague.
These freaky buzzers are not harmless, but their mating call may be a pain in your ear from sunrise to sunset; just when you thought all was quiet in your neck of the woods.
