Liz may is probably correct, I did a Google search and found several sites
that said that cicadas do feed while above ground but I saw a couple that said
they do not. I'm betting the annual type do and the 17year type do not or both
do. but I can't find anything definitive on it. One thing is for sure fish
love to eat them! The buzzing they make when they fall in the water probably
makes them much more interesting to fish.
