Invasion of the Brood X Cicadas
Then it happens, they emerge, with one goal in mind--- SEX. The female lays her eggs and the cycle starts all over again, for them to emerge 17 years later.
When they emerge, they crawl out of their holes in the ground at night. They shed their skin and wait for day break. The males gather at the tops of the trees and make a huge racket trying to attract the females. They mate, the male dies and the female lays her eggs and dies.
This is a video of the emergence cycle.
