When I saw the above bugs casing outside, I almost needed to get a life insurance quote. I wasn't sure what those things were besides super creepy. I have to thank the Twitter Community, because several of them quickly let me know they were cicadas. We have several bugs and beetles we are suppose to on the lookout for, so I really wanted to make sure that these weren't those. However, these casings are on our trees and the kids swingset. I hope they go away soon! We already knocked a bunch down and I don't want to be doing this the rest of the summer.
