Cicadas Make a lot of Noise for a Little Bug

Ever wonder what that annoying buzzing sound coming from your tree is? Well it could be a Cicada. The Grand Western Cicada or sometimes called the Bush Cicada is what you may be hearing. The larva of this noisy fella feeds on the sap in the roots of trees until it becomes an adult then it comes out of the ground climbs a tree and starts its love call. That buzzing that drives us crazy is actually “all the rage” if you’re a female cicada. The adults actually don’t feed, they just are looking for love.
