The very name "cicada" conjures images of earlier this summer when millions of them screeched and swarmed and left behind a blanket of corpses.
Fortunately, that brood of cicada is one that arrives only every 17 years. Unfortunately, a cousin with an intimidating name and even nastier sting is prevalent this time of year, and now is the time to keep a watchful eye out for them.
Cicada killer wasps are now setting up housekeeping in well-drained, light-textured soil, according to Tommy Yankey, an agent with the Anderson County Extension Office.
