Cicada Invasion 2011 Video! Amazing and Disgusting

IMG_0198

Tens of thousands of Cicada septendecim from the XIX Brood are making an >80 decibel racket in my St. Louis, Missouri backyard garden.  Totally gross and loud.  Can someone please tell me what they are shooting out of their butts?  Yuck!  I took these videos on June 2, 2011.  Some people think they are locust, but they are not, but it does feel like a plague with all these insects.  Thank goodness I covered all 9 of my new fruit trees with netting…unfortunately, the un-netted serviceberries are getting the brunt of the cicada army. It will be a long 4-6 weeks until they are gone.  Luckily they quiet down after dark.
