A Plague of Locust

17-year locust in Southern WVOkay, it's not quite a plague, but the hills are alive here - with locust. We have a species of 17-year-locust (or cicadia) that's been underground now since 1991. Now that they're up, they're making noise!

The Logan Banner has an article on them. Click on the picture and you'll get a few more shots of them.

I hear they're good with honey. I just don't know whether you're supposed to cook them or eat them raw...
