Behind Kroger
Logan, Ohio

In late spring 2016, seventeen-year cicadas emerged in a section of the United States that includes eastern Ohio. The cicadas crawl out of the ground, shed their skins, and climb up into the trees. One cicada makes a loud and distinctive sound, but a whole group of them creates a dull roar.

This recording was made behind the Kroger supermarket in Logan, Ohio, toward the end of the cicada emergence. The roar of cicadas is gone, and only a few M. cassini individuals can be heard now. (See http://www.cicadamania.com/audio/ )

Sound recorded using the built-in mic on an iPhone 5.
