Episode VII: The Loud Buzz of Love

Brood X, as you might be hearing, has emerged and they are looking to do the one thing they’ve been waiting 17 years to do – mate! The loud buzzing is the cicadas’ way of saying “what’s your sign” in a crowded bar, but it’s not all fun and games this year.

Dr. Gene Kritsky from Mount St. Joseph University tells WVXU’s Cory Sharber about their reproductive mission and a fungus that’s threatening many in the brood.

Cory Sharber attended Murray State University majoring in journalism and political science and comes to Cincinnati Public Radio from NPR Member station WKMS.
