Brood X of the periodical cicadas is largest cohort of cicadas that spend 17 years underground before rising, en masse, to molt, mate, and make a lot of noise. “This is the big one, a generational event,” says Gene Kritsky, Ph.D., dean of Behavioral and Natural Sciences at Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati, Ohio.. “For those who weren’t alive 17 years ago or who were too young at the time and can’t remember, they are in for quite an experience.” (Photo courtesy of Gene Kritsky, Ph.D., Mount St. Joseph University)
