Cicada sheds in plastic box
Shades of Indiana - cicadas emerge at different (prime numbered) intervals, perhaps to foil predators. Back in 2004, Indiana enjoyed (if that's the right word) a bumper year for cicadas, as the annual, 13 year, and 17 year cicadas all emerged at once. A friend of Ron's sent him a box full of cicada sheds (the papery husk left when the adult cicada emerges from the split back of the nymph), and we're still working on them. Please buy some from us. They're $1.50 each, in protective plastic boxes.
