    I just realized that I haven't heard one word about them for many, many, months.

    Did they all just go away?

    I believe the state of Washington is still hunting down nests and eradicating what they find. Otherwise I haven't heard of them anywhere else.

    They are still here (NW Washington) and moving south.

    There are efforts to find their nests and exterminate them. I have no idea how successful these efforts have been.

    I think they started their own minor-league baseball franchise. Just wait till they play my Trash Pandas. They'll be staggering home with their stingers between their legs!

    Actually, I read the bug-eating thread, and I ate them all. Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? If you were offended by that, I'm sorry.

    They've been busy here.

    "Cicadas," said the hornet
    We must vindicate this venom
    Eradicate the rubber duck
    Squeeze the life out of something soft
