a marketing professional from สล็อต เอ็กโอ Jersey. The perfect vacation involves lots of bugs.They cannot be just any random flaws of any kind, they have to be periodic cicadas.Reptiles spend most of their lives underground, living on sap from tree roots. Then, in the spring of the 13th or 17th, depending on the parent, they tunnels out simultaneously and in bulk for the short-lived adult mating frenzy set to the sound track. At the ringing of a male calling here Mozgai knows very well the cicada's siren song. He kept his car at least 10 times and drove nearly 30,000 miles on American roads, from Maryland to Mississippi, Kansas to Kentucky, to track it.

They almost have personalities,” Dan Mozgai says of the cicada from time to time. Here, he holds the Magicicada Cassini.I can go anywhere," he said.He was about to leave the house to look for the bug again. This spring, it takes place for the first time since 2004 of a group of cicadas known as Brood X, calling it the Cicada Olympics.The Brood X is one of the largest 17-year-old cicadas and 15 states in the eastern United States, as well as Washington. DC will see swarms of black and red-eyed insects.

Mozgai, 52, was one of the followers of cicadas who devoted their free time to regular periodic follow-up to cicadas.These citizen scientists traveled across the country, taking numerous photographs and recording meticulous information on what lifeforms appeared. The time of day they sing, how they react to predatory animals, and what kind of leaf the female spawns some species from distant Japan.Call them cicada chasers.It helps scientists better understand their children's behaviors and relationships and explore broader questions about biodiversity, ecology and climate change.

Since periodic cicadas are temperature sensitive, different forms of hybrids and strains reflect climate change.The periodic return of the cicada typically begins in early to mid-May. This year, Mozgai will head to western New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania to get a close look at its favorite insects crawling. Come out of the underground hideout There's a fear for it, because you're surrounded by thousands of creatures, probably millions that weren't there the other day," Mozgai said. It is thought that a large number of intermittent cicadas would appear simultaneously in order to be able to evade predators and live to mate and start the cycle all over again.

Needless to say, not everyone welcomes the idea of ​​millions of flaws falling like the biblical plague. But even those who view the tide as loud and annoying, it will be hard to deny that they are seeing nature unfolding on a frightening extent.Typically, the cicadas start to emerge when the soil temperature 8 inches (20 centimeters) underground reaches 64 degrees Fahrenheit (18 degrees Celsius). ”That seemed to be the trigger that caused them all to emerge over a few days or several. Week in one area, ”said Gary Parsons, an entomologist at Michigan State University. Warm rains often provoke their appearance.It is one of the wonders of the insect world.
