This spring, cicadas will emerge along the East Coast after 17 years underground.
These friendly bugs are causing a lot of buzz — and not just because of the drum-like “love song” that male cicadas make to attract females.
Cicadas are a boon to the local ecosystem. Cicada nymphs construct chimney-like tunnels as they emerge, naturally aerating the soil even better than earthworms do. The tunnels remain, allowing more water to reach trees’ roots.
