Entomologist Dr. Art Evans and WCVE producer Steve Clark share some of their last experiences with Brood II periodical cicadas. Thanks to a WBY? listener in Bumpass, Virginia, Art was able to photograph cicadas mating and laying eggs.
Thanks to everyone for contributing their Brood II observations to Cicadawatch 2013.
