    Cicadas

    This year it is the 17 year cicadas for the midwest, and hits the hardest where I live. I know they lay eggs in small tree parts (1/8 inch to 1/2 inch diameter) which usually kills that part, but will they lay eggs in my sarracenia or fly trap?

    I'm jealous. I wish that was happening here.

    How come here we have cicadas every year? I mean... why is it that every year we get a normal amount instead of a giant swarm once every 17 years?

    Technically 17 year cicadas aren't every 17 years, they are EVERY YEAR! lol 17 year means just the time it takes for a generation to grow and mature to egg layers, so every year you have a new generation coming up.

    their are Species of Cicadas that only come out every X years in mass swarms (like Hear in ohio they came out 2 years ago). Unless you are saying 17 years is how long it takes to develope and the majority of the species just happens to develop this year than say last year or the year before that?
