Where Are All The Cicadas?

A couple of months ago we were being warned of a deafening cacophony from the impending 17 year cicada invasion. So far, the only thing deafening in Ocean County is the silence.

Experts were telling us to expect the winged hordes starting in late May and hanging around for a month or two. While some parts of New Jersey have been loudly dealing with the critters, the Jersey Shore seems to have escaped the worst of it.

I’ve read a number of explanations, from the soil in Ocean County not being great for cicada larvae to the lingering effects of Hurricane Sandy (the larvae being flooded or washed away by the storm’s waters).

But I’m no expert, those are only theories that I’ve heard through the grapevine.

Do you have cicadas in your area? If you are an expert, please comment below and tell us why Ocean County has been mostly spared!
